Museum of American Finance Features a Special Collection in the Newman Library

Blumenthal headshotOn the 90th anniversary of the Stock Market Crash of 1929 former New York Times reporter Ralph Blumenthal, a Distinguished Lecturer in the Newman Library, will deliver a talk at the Museum of American Finance about how cash-starved municipalities issued their own bills and coins using examples from the Baruch Archives.  His presentation, “Crash! The Stock Market Collapse of 1929 and the Rise of Fake Money (Scrip)” will be followed by a Q&A session.

Admission is $5, but students and members of the Museum of American Finance may attend at no cost.  This event will be held on Tuesday, October 29, 2019 (12:30 PM to 1:30 PM) at 48 Wall Street, 5th Floor.

graphing calculatorThe Library has 620 TI-89 graphing calculators available for Baruch College students to borrow for the fall 2019 semester.  Students who are interested in borrowing a calculator must enter their Baruch email address on the calculator distribution entry form.

Students will be selected from the list at random at 7:00 a.m. on September 4, 2019 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 10:00 p.m. on September 10 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 September 11.  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 September 4.
