ENG 2100: Writing I - Prof. Christopher Moore, Fall 2020

Explains resources available through the Newman Library to assist students with research for their first writing assignments in college by suggesting databases and explaining the types of resources and help available.

The William and Anita Newman Library

Baruch College Newman Library - Birdseye View

Due to the Covid-19 virus, the physical library building is closed.  However, the librarians remain available to provide virtual assistance.

Hello Prof. Moore's Students

I hope you are doing well in this most unusual of times. 

This guide will provide you with information about the library's resources, focusing on finding a New York Times article of interest and using other library resources to build an argument for your final paper.  Once you have a topic, there may be specific databases that will be most helpful to you.  The Newman Library has databases arranged by subject and also by name.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact a Newman Library librarian for assistance in helping you locate information needed for your assignment.

This guide was prepared by librarian and Associate Professor Rita Ormsby, who is on leave this fall as she is retiring from Baruch.  She, like the library staff and your professors, want you to succeed. Sometimes asking for assistance helps you do so. 



Use Your Baruch User Name and Password to Access Resources

Working off-campus, you will be required to enter your Baruch user name and password to access the subscription databases available through the Newman Library's homepage. 

Have a Technical/Access Problem?

If you have trouble with your Baruch user name and password, or accessing a database or article, there may be a technical problem.

The Baruch Computer and Technology Center (BCTC)  resolves these issues through their help desk.

While courses are being offered virtually, the BCTC is operating remotely.  Email BCTC at helpdesk@baruch.cuny.edu.
