How to Borrow a Calculator from the Newman Library for Spring 2017

The Library has 800 TI-89 graphing calculators available for Baruch College students to borrow for the spring 2017 semester.  Students who are interested in borrowing a calculator must enter their Baruch email address on this online form:

Students will be selected at random from the list at 7:00 a.m. on February 6, 2017 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 until 8:00 p.m. on February 12 to pick up the calculator.  Calculators that are not picked up by that time will be distributed at the 2nd floor circulation desk on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 9:00 a.m. on February 14.  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 February 6.

New Look for the Home Page Search Box

Today, we are updating the library home page with a redesigned search box that offers easier and more intuitive access to key library resources students and faculty want. Featuring a more modern, clean look, this new design draws on insights gained from a year’s worth of research into the preferences and habits of our users. With their participation in three rounds of usability testing, Baruch students played a central role in shaping the look and feel of the search box.

We hope you’ll give it a try and share with us any feedback you have about the new look.
