We are pleased to welcome you back to the CSI Library. The Library’s hours beginning the week of Aug. 23 are below.
Please note: As in the past, during the last two hours listed, the Library will function as a study hall on the first floor with only Public Safety present (i.e., no Library services or staff)
A number of study rooms will be available to students starting first day of class, Aug. 25. At this time, the rooms will be reserved for students taking in-person/hybrid and online classes that meet on the same day in order to accommodate online class schedules. The reservation form will be available on the Library’s homepage, as well as the College’s Study Space Webpage.
Reference Services will remain online. You can contact a Librarian using our 24/7 chat reference service available on the homepage or through our Contact Us page.
You may also schedule a virtual research consultation appointment with a subject librarian.
Instructional Services will also remain online. Library faculty have developed a growing suite of instructional video tutorials to teach information literacy concepts and skills, and how to access resources.
Faculty may request Remote Library Instruction for their courses, which addresses a research-related assignment by completing the online form link. Our Instruction Librarians can provide synchronous or asynchronous sessions depending on your needs and what works best for your student’s assignments.
Please note: Beginning the week of Aug. 23, students, faculty, and staff will access our electronic resources using their CUNYfirst log-in credentials rather than their SLAS/FLAS credentials. However, one’s SLAS/FLAS will continue to be used to access the Library’s computers and WiFi.
For other inquiries, please view our Student Services and Faculty Services Webpages.
In order to promote a safe and conducive study environment, the Library will employ social distancing, and like the rest of campus, will currently have a mask mandate. As in the past, food and drink is not permitted in the Library.
Please continue to check our homepage for updates.
As always, we are here to help.
All the best for a safe and productive semester.
