The library recently won a year’s worth of free access to the Chronicle of Higher Education online. Enjoy!
The College has now migrated to a new Student Email system: Microsoft Windows Live. The old student email system will be brought completely off line January 27th. The new Live account is to be the official means of electronic communication with all students. Blackboard, SIMS and other centralized systems will utilize the new email addresses.
Students must activate their new account before use. Information on how to do this has been disseminated and continues to be disseminated to students through our Student Computing Helpdesk. In general, a student’s new email address will be their email@example.com. However, students can obtain their actual email address by going to the following link: http://mail.citytech.cuny.edu/
We now have mobile access to our Ebsco databases. It is available on our A to Z database page.
This link is for any device. We are in the process of developing a new page with links for a few electronic resources that have some form of mobile access and that should go live soon.
