Reference Services

Our library has really changed! Have you noticed? Recent renovations have changed the face and space of our main floor Reference area and transformed it into the Reference Commons. Adjacent to this area, we've added the Business, Law, and Information Science Sources (BLISS) area.

Here's what happened:

The walls came down on the Reference Department, and we now have one large open area. The Reference Commons contains the comprehensive resources from the former Reference Department. As you enter, you will see:

  • Centralized Reference Desk for assistance

  • Extensive collections of reference indexes and literary criticism

  • Wireless hubs and plugs for laptops throughout the entire space

  • Interlibrary Loan Department now fully operational in a separate office

  • Newly established office of Instructional Services

  • BookStack entrance moved to center stage as you enter the building

  • Copy Center with four photocopiers

  • Prominent wall space available for Library Exhibits

  • Individual study and collaborative work areas

In the Business, Law, and Information Science Sources (BLISS) area, you will find:

    Business, Law, and Information Science 

  • Large retrospective and current reference collection from the Center for Business Research (CBR)

  • Reference Materials and a comprehensive periodicals collection from the Library and Information Science Library

  • Outstanding collection of New York State and Federal legal sources from the Reference Department

  • Gazebo for collaborative study

  • Quiet Study Lounge that provides serene space for concentration

On the lower level, the Periodicals Department has undergone a major facelift. Aside from the new paint and carpeting, a study center has been created, and there are four photocopiers and additional computer workstations available. Business periodicals from the former CBR have been relocated here, as has the Library's Technical Services Department.

And with the grand opening of the Bookmark Café, our library coffee shop, you'll never need to leave the library! Now you can come to the library to:

  • Research a topic
  • Check out a book
  • Get research assistance
  • Prepare for a lecture
  • Practice a speech
  • Collaborate on a project
  • Plug in your laptop
  • Use our wireless technology
  • Type your paper in the IT Department
  • Meet your friends
  • Attend a class
  • Enjoy a cup of coffee
