When doing institutional history it is always a mystery where your research might lead you. The researcher often thinks that all they want or need is in place in the archive or library that is being researched. When researching the history of Baruch College all of the materials are not at Baruch College, and even City College sources might not give you the answers you are looking for. You need to check other libraries which might also contain relevant information. These are some of them:
