Baruch College Library Open 24 Hours a Day for One Week (11/7-11/15)
Starting this evening (11/7), Baruch students studying for mid-term exams, as well as those looking to catch-up or get ahead of their studies given the disruption of Hurricane Sandy, will be able to find study and reading space 24 hours a day in the Newman Library for one week commencing this evening, Wednesday, November 7th and concluding Thursday night, November 15th when the library will close that evening (as it does for regularly scheduled hours) at midnight. The service desks will close at their regularly scheduled times throughout the week. Please visit the following page to confirm the hours of the various service desks: http://newman.baruch.cuny.edu/about/hours.html
Although the reference desk will close at its usual time, chat reference service is available 24 x 7 at http://newman.baruch.cuny.edu/help/askalibrarian.html
The College is extending hours to accommodate Baruch students who now have additional class meetings, assignments and exams loaded into the weeks before the end of the semester. Your academic progress is a priority. We hope that you and your families are well and recovering from the disastrous impact of the hurricane.

Baruch College students may now use the Newman Library’s online Group Study Room Reservation Service to reserve a room up to one day in advance. After logging in with a Baruch username and password, users see the availability of the rooms that hold 2-3 people and the rooms that hold 4-8 people. For rooms that are marked “available” a reservation may be made for a period of up to 3 hours or until room closing time, whichever is shorter. Only one reservation per user is permitted per day. Users still need to charge out the room key at the circulation desk. Reservations are automatically cancelled fifteen minutes after starting time if the key is not checked out at the circulation desk; the room is then made available to other users on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information about the service, please visit the Newman Library’s circulation desk.
