Welcome back. We are happy to announce new hours for the Spring 2024 semester. Starting Thursday, Jan. 25, 2024, the CSI Library (Building 1L) will be open:  

Monday: 9:00am-9:00pm
Tuesday: 9:00am-9:00pm
Wednesday: 9:00am-9:00pm
Thursday: 9:00am-9:00pm
Friday: 9:00am-5:00pm
Saturday: 10:00am-6:00pm
Sunday: Closed      

Please check our homepage for exceptions and updates.   

We are excited to share the news that CUNY’s Office of Library Services and the Office of Library and Information Services at SUNY have collaborated on a project to share physical resources. Requests initiated in our catalog, OneSearch, may now be filled by a library in either CUNY or SUNY. Learn more online.    

As a reminder, 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. 

Group 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 literacy concepts and skills, as well as how to identify and access credible resources.  

Please visit our Student Services and Faculty Services Webpages for additional information. 

We look forward to seeing you in the Library.
