Welcome to the Library!

The Library has helpful services for students, staff, and faculty including 24/7 chat service, text a librarian assistance, course materials on library reserve, subject liaison librarians, and study zones.

As we begin the Spring 2018 semester, we’d like to remind you about the following library services:

Ask a Librarian

You can chat with a librarian 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, text a librarian at (914) 873-1711, call us at (914) 251-6410, email us at, or visit the Reference Desk for in-person help; look for the “Ask a Librarian” question mark logo.

Subject Liaison Librarians

Subject liaison librarians help students and faculty with research, curate research guides to critical resources, and acquire library materials for our collection. They also teach information literacy/research skills in your classes. To find the librarian for your board of study, see the subject liaisons page.

Due to recent staff changes, some disciplines may not have a liaison listed. To schedule an instruction session in these areas, please contact Rebecca Oling ( To request that the Library purchase books, films, or other materials in these disciplines, please contact Patrick Callahan (

For general research help, you can always Ask a Librarian!

Library Course Reserves

The Library provides access to many of your required textbooks on Library Reserve!

  • Students: to find out if your book is on physical reserve at the Library, look for the Library Reserves block in your Moodle course(s). You can also search the Library’s Main Catalog (Books & Media tab) for the title and author. Items on Library Reserve can typically be checked out for 3 hours and can only be used inside the Library.
  • Faculty: please refer to the Reserves Guide for detailed information about placing items on physical reserve at the Library for your classes. If you have questions, please contact your subject liaison librarian.

Study Zones

The Library is divided into three study zones: silent, quiet, and group. You can choose the noise-level that best meets your needs. Please help us keep the Library a calm, quiet environment for everyone by respecting the zones and each other. If someone is being too noisy, you can let us know by texting (914) 873-1711 or you can be pro-active and hand out an Own Your Zone reminder card. Cards are located at the Reference and Circulation desks and in the main stacks. Find your zone on the Study Zones map.

Make a Suggestion

We welcomes suggestions and recommendations for new library materials. Please complete the Make a Recommendation form to request an addition to the general collection. Please provide your contact information if you would like to be notified about the status of your request.
