Scholarly Communication

reference books

A reference librarian is available anytime the library is open. Check our current hours on the right hand side of all our pages and feel free to visit the Reference Desk (located across from the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the library). If you are not on campus and need research assistance, you can call a librarian (212-774-4808) or virtually ask them a question via Ask-a-Librarian

The reference collection is located on the first floor of the library adjacent to the library’s designated research computers.

Among the library’s research resources are periodical databases that range from those of general interest (InfoTrac, Ebscohost, Lexis-Nexis) to more subject-specific databases (PsychInfo, America: History and Life, MLA Bibliography). Most of the databases provide full text.

The research computer resources are also accessible outside of the library via the library’s databases and e-journals page. You will need your current network login and password for off campus access.

For more information about reference materials or research help, please speak with a Reference Librarian (212-774-4808).
