Did you know that librarians teach classes in information literacy and research? LIBR 100 is a one-credit course for students who are interested in improving their research skills and gaining an understanding of the flow of information and information sources. When students learn the skills taught in LIBR 100 they are better equipped to evaluate information, critical in a time when it is difficult to distinguish reliable information from misinformation.
This year, as the college transitioned to remote instruction in March, the Hunter College Libraries staff and faculty worked tirelessly to provide access to our resources and services while working from home. Instead of our in-person Library Day celebration, we decided to provide space for our staff and faculty to call each other out for the good work we have all been doing - much of which is invisible to the end-user.
Hunter College Libraries staff and faculty are all still working hard to provide access to our services and resources.
Our Ask-a-Librarian service is busier than ever and available 24/7 - Hunter Librarians are online an ready to help. When Hunter and CUNY librarians are unavailable, a worldwide consortium of academic librarians are online and help you and also refer your questions to us for follow up.
When in doubt, Ask A Librarian!
Although our physical spaces are closed during the pandemic, the work you continue to do to support the Hunter College Community is important and appreciated. Happy National Library Workers Day!
Beginning March 14, all CUNY libraries will suspend regular overdue fines and recall overdue fines on books. This is to reduce the need for borrowers to return books to campuses or to negotiate fine payments in-person during the period affected by coronavirus closures.
Reserve fines will remain unchanged.
