The Library’s (Building 1L) hours for Spring 2023, beginning Wednesday, January 25, 2023, are as follows:

Monday-Thursday: 9:00am-9:00pm

Friday: 9:00am-5:00pm 

Saturday-Sunday: 1:00pm-5:00pm 

Continue to check our homepage for exceptions and updates.  

Please note, even when the Library building is not open, we are still here to help. Our 24/7 Chat Reference Service is available on our homepage and Contact Us page. We also encourage students to use our Research Appointment Request Form to schedule a virtual consultation with Library faculty for one-on-one help with in-depth research assignments.

Study rooms are available using our Reservation System. However, students taking online classes may continue to use all three floors of the Library, as well as other open labs on campus, using headphones so as not to disturb others.

A self-check system is located by the Circulation/Reserves Desk to check out circulating books from the third floor, and a secure book return “mailbox” is located outside the Library doors, or use the window slots located immediately to the left of the Library’s entrance.

Faculty requesting Library instruction for the Fall semester should complete the Library Instruction Request Form. A suite of Instructional Videos for Library Research is also available to learn information on literacy concepts and skills, as well as how to identify and access credible resources.

For other inquiries, please visit our Student Services and Faculty Services Web pages.

As a reminder, for off-campus access to the Library’s electronic resources, students, faculty, and staff can use 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.

I hope to see you in the Library.

All the best for a safe and productive semester,
