Rather than being boring, you should think of you library as the place where you go to play hide and seek.
Searching online can be the answer to your prayers or the beginning of your worst nightmare. Forums differ from regular sites in the sense that they are a lot more interactive.
You need to get to know that place inside out because it will contain the answer to just about any academic question that you could ever pose.
Assuming, of course that the library is a relatively decent size.
Try searching for forums that are geared specifically to students.
You never know, in addition to getting the answers that you need you might also end up making some new friends. You would be amazed at how much general, or indeed specialist knowledge that your friends and family possess.
