Celebrating Hunter College Libraries

We invite you to explore our Virtual Library Day Celebration for 2021. Library Day is a chance each year for the Hunter College Libraries to celebrate student, staff, and faculty research and creative accomplishments. This year and in 2020, we kept up the celebration in an online format, and also used the opportunity for our department to call out our own accomplishments for the year.

Register for a Section of LIBR 100: Information Research for Fall 2021!

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.

New article about growth and change in libraries by members of Hunter College Libraries!

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.

Women's History Month

 

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.
