Library Survey & Enter to Win $500 Gift Certificate

To start the survey go to: http://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/1763900/CUNY-Baruch-Newman-Library-Performance-Survey

The College has initiated an ambitious study aimed at better aligning our Library spaces with the demands of our users. As part of our effort to understand your needs and aspirations for the future library, we are conducting a Library Performance Survey through our consultant AECOM. We are interested in learning how you use the library today, and what other tools, services and spaces you need to achieve your goals – whether it be group study with your peers or global research collaboration with world renowned scholars.

The survey is open now and will remain open through Oct 19, 2014. It will take about 10 minutes to complete. All responses are treated as confidential and will only be analyzed in aggregate. We ask you to take a moment to fill out this survey now.  At the end of the survey you will see a link to optionally enter your email address in a drawing for a $500 gift certificate to the Baruch College Bookstore.

Welcome - 10 Things You Should Know about the Library

  1. Validate your ID at the Circulation Desk on the 2nd floor so you can borrow materials. Do this early in the semester!
  2. Over 200 library databases provide access to thousands of online journals, newspapers, books, reports, and data sets that are not freely available on the web. When connecting to databases while off campus, you will be prompted to type in your Baruch username and password.
  3. Research help is available in-person or online. Use the Reference Desk, located on the second floor, for in-person, drop-in assistance. For in-depth research help, schedule a research consultation. Use Ask A Librarian for 24/7 chat help or to email a librarian. 
  4. The library is open for studying from 7am to midnight, everyday, except for legal holidays and summer sessions. (Reference, Circulation, and Laptop Loan desk hours vary.)
  5. During midterms and finals, the library is open 24 hours a day for studying. (Only currently registered Baruch students will be permitted to stay in or enter the library after midnight.)
  6. Search the library's catalog for books, DVDs, and electronic media. You can search all CUNY libraries at once or limit your search to one CUNY library. You can request circulating materials from other CUNY libraries through the catalog by using the orange "Request It" button.
  7. Connect to the wireless network by using your Baruch username and password.
  8. Online subject guides created by librarians will help you to connect to resources and tutorials related to your topic.
  9. Most books can be borrowed for a 3 week loan period. You can renew books through MyAccount in the library's catalog. (more information)
  10. You can use any of the CUNY libraries. Before visiting another CUNY library, make sure you have your CUNY ID and a bursar's receipt for the current semester.
