Fourth Floor Reopens Partially:
The north side of the fourth floor has reopened for use. The books on that floor are now stored on new mobile high-density shelving. Library users who do not have experience with this type of shelving should ask a staff member at the circulation desk on the 2nd floor for assistance with retrieving a book. The south side of the floor, including the study rooms, remains closed until the completion of the stack renovation project. Public Safety has placed caution tape around the perimeter advising users not to enter that area.
Books on Reserve and Textbooks:
Loans of books on reserve for courses will be transacted at the main circulation desk.
Computers in the Library:
The desktop computers in the Library are not available.
Users are expected to bring their own device or borrow one from the equipment loan program on the second floor.
The WiFi network name is Baruch. Log in with your SPS username and password for access.
The printers in the Library are available for use. CUNY SPS students can send print jobs for purchase to https://printing.baruch.cuny.edu (requires SPS username and password log on). Five complimentary printing credits are loaded. After using them up, users need to purchase more at the printing kiosk next to the reference desk on the second floor.
Group Study Rooms:
All the study rooms in the Library will be available to students on a first-come, first-served basis. Keys are loaned at the circulation desk on the 2nd floor.
Equipment loans (such as CUNY SPS laptops) will be transacted at the technology loan desk on site in the Library on the second floor. The items available for loan and the associated loan periods are listed on the Library’s technology loan services page.
The book drop will be available in the lobby outside the Library to enable users to return books without having to enter the library.
The scanners will be available on the second floor of the library by the second week of the semester.
The Library’s faculty will continue to provide research sessions for classes in other academic departments. Instructors who request a session from the Library should expect that it will be delivered remotely via Zoom.
