Facilities & Equipment


The Art Library has four public computers, located in the central area facing the service desk. They provide access to all Queens College and CUNY catalogs and resources, as well as the Internet. While students are welcome to check their email and surf the web on these computers, priority needs to be given to patrons who are doing research.

Current patrons can print items from any computer in the Art Library to networked pay-to-print stations located on Level 2. Please remember to identify your printing so that you can easily retrieve it. Once you have sent all materials you require to the printer, you will need to log into the pay-to-print station and pay prior to receiving your printed materials. See Photocopying & Printing for more information.


There is no photocopier on Level 6. Copiers are located on Level 2. See Photocopying & Printing for more information.
