LIBR 100, Information Research, is the libraries’ one-credit course in which students learn how to hone their research topics, select appropriate databases for their topics, and evaluate the information that they find, both through Hunter’s own resources and on the free web. The course was first offered in the spring semester of 2007 and has been offered every spring and fall since then.
Like many of us, Hunter College Libraries went through some changes last year. We experienced transitions in library leadership, an international pandemic, and the dramatic introduction of new ways of working. We stuck together through it all and developed new ways of organizing ourselves and our work. We drew on leadership across the libraries through expanded definitions of department membership and committee structures. We grew together as an organization in ways that we could not anticipate.

As we celebrate International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, we can acknowledge Hunter College as the first public, tuition-free college for women in America. Founded in 1870 by Thomas Hunter as a Normal College, its mission was to train teachers. Hunter College was known for high entry requirements; it did not exclude applicants based on race, religion, or ethnicity. Take a look at some of the digitized archival material available on the website.
