Respect Your Purchase! Help keep the Library clean and respect the Study Zones during 24/5.

  • Please be mindful of those studying around you (including on floors below and above) and refrain from holding conversations, meetings, tutoring sessions, etc. in the Silent and Quiet areas and hallways outside of classrooms.
  • Group work and tutoring should take place in Group Study zones only, and conversations should be held at a reasonable “indoor” volume. Group means together, not louder!
  • Always use headphones when playing audio or video on a computer in the Library. Headphones are available for check-out at the Circulation Desk.
  • If someone is too loud, be proactive and hand them an Own Your Zone card located in holders throughout the stacks or text a librarian at (914) 873-1711.
  • Help make the Library a calm and relaxing study space for everyone!
  • Carry your MORE Card with you at all times if you come to the Library overnight.
  • Commuters, please be advised there is no overnight parking in Lot W1 from 2:00am to 6:00am
  • When using Library computers, save your work by emailing files to yourself, saving to the cloud (i.e. GoogleDocs), or saving to a USB flash drive. Do not save anything to the Desktop/My Documents as public computers are regularly wiped of all files. Lab computers automatically log off if left inactive for 5+ minutes, so if you need to step away, be sure to save your work and log out.
  • Please review the Library’s Policies on guests, food and drink, noise, care for library materials, and cellphones.

Thanks and good luck with your final projects and exams!
