For those of you preparing for finals, the library will remain open until 10pm tonight, Friday Dec 16th. Happy studying!
As we head in to finals and the end of the semester, we’d like to remind all users that the library will be open as usual through December 22nd. We’ll be closed from December 23rd to January 1st, and will re-open on January 2nd for the winter intersession. If you’re planning a library visit, you can always confirm our hours by checking our website. In the event of a weather-related closing, we’ll do our best to post that information here.
Need to use library collections when the library is closed? You can! You can access electronic content, including e-books, electronic journals and database collections by logging in with your activated City Tech Library card.
Our Cambridge Histories ebook collection is growing regularly and if you haven’t ever explored these reference books, you’re in for a surprise. These ebooks cover a wide variety of historical topics from Islam to 20th century music to history of the book. We’ve just added 41 new records to the online catalog, so don’t forget that all ebooks are also findable in the online catalog as well as via direct links in the ebooks section of our website.
Here are some recent additions to our film collection. These videos are available for students’ viewing in the Multimedia Resource Center and loanable to faculty up to 1 week.

We have excellent non-print resources featuring still images and videos but no music collections. However, we are currently considering Naxos Music Library for the library. It is on trial until December 31, 2011.
Naxos provides streaming music (music can not be downloaded). It chiefly consists of classical music but there is considerable supplemental material to aid in learning about music including analyses of specific works by many composers. Classroom faculty can create custom playlists.
City Tech Faculty: Contact Monica Berger email@example.com for access to the playlist function.
City Tech Library is seeking adjunct librarians holding an ALA-accredited MLS for part-time day, evening and Saturday hours for the Spring 2012 semester. Adjunct librarians will join a team of library faculty in providing reference services and information literacy instruction to the City Tech community. Adjunct librarians also work on projects to support reference, instruction, the library’s website, and resource sharing. Excellent communication and project management skills and other library or educational technology experience are a must. Website development experience is preferred.
Successful candidates will have an established record of excellence in reference service in an academic library, including experience with information literacy instruction. Preference will be given to candidates who have worked with diverse student populations and to those accustomed to the responsibility of overseeing service operations during assigned hours.
Interested candidates should send a CV and a cover letter briefly outlining their interest and background to Prof. Tess Tobin at TTobin@citytech.cuny.edu.
City Tech is located between Brooklyn Heights and downtown Brooklyn, near the Brooklyn side of the Great Bridge. For more information about our library, please visit our website.
