Baruch College students may now use the Newman Library’s online Group Study Room Reservation Service to reserve a room up to one day in advance. After logging in with a Baruch username and password, users see the availability of the rooms that hold 2-3 people and the rooms that hold 4-8 people. For rooms that are marked “available” a reservation may be made for a period of up to 3 hours or until room closing time, whichever is shorter. Only one reservation per user is permitted per day. Users still need to charge out the room key at the circulation desk. Reservations are automatically cancelled fifteen minutes after starting time if the key is not checked out at the circulation desk; the room is then made available to other users on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information about the service, please visit the Newman Library’s circulation desk.
The Library has approximately 400 TI-89 graphing calculators available for Baruch College students to borrow for the fall 2012 semester. Students who are interested in borrowing a calculator must enter their names on a list in ONE of the following ways:
1. Text the word “calculator” to 877877 and reply to the request for your Baruch e-mail address. (Message and data rates may apply.)
2. Enter your Baruch e-mail address on this online form.
Students will be selected at random from the list during the first week of classes and notified by e-mail to come to the circulation desk to pick up the calculator. Students who are selected from the waiting list will have one week from the sending of the e-mail message to pick up the calculator. Calculators that are not picked up within the week will be distributed at the laptop loan desk on a first-come, first-served basis. Each student may only submit one entry to the waiting list. Multiple entries will result in disqualification from the calculator loan process. Entries must be submitted by 7:00 a.m. on August 30, 2012.
