I’m very excited that the first phase of our Main Library renovation is finally finished and we can begin the Fall 2013 semester with our new and improved 3rd floor! Members of the Hunter College Community may remember the space before these renovations began, and I think everyone can agree that having natural light, collaborative work areas, increased electrical outlets and a synthesis of our Library Services is a great improvement. We have a long way to go but it’s a great beginning. We are finally ready to be a 21st century space.
But let’s not forget that it’s more than just the physical space of our four libraries that makes us the most used area on all Hunter campuses. Our electronic resources and e-book collections continue to grow. We have more laptops and now iPads to loan out to students. And our Library faculty are available in person or online for quick reference help or in-depth consultation. Writing Center Tutors and ICIT Support Staff are also at our new Reference Desk.
Whether you are a student, alumni, faculty or staff member, remember that we are here for you.
