Our How Can We Do Better? Creating a More Just and Inclusive Future series has brought students, faculty, alumni, and other community members together for thoughtful, thought-provoking conversation on Black Lives Matter, student activism, educational equity, and related topics.

With the recent Black Lives Matter Movement, students on both a local and national scale are organizing and taking part in multiple struggles for racial, social, and economic justice. With students hopeful for a more diverse and equitable future, programs like Queens College SEEK and the Center for Ethnic, Racial, and Religious Understanding (CERRU) are fostering collaboration and leadership skills among students of color, with several recent SEEK graduates embarking on successful political careers. As we look to the new generation of students for tomorrow's future, Queens Memory and Queens College Library invites student leaders, administrators, and community organizers to discuss everyday activism and leadership potential in all students, how colleges can better support students in these endeavors, the value of fostering Black leadership, and opportunities for political action and engagement post-college.This program is the second panel in our 3-part series, titled “How Can We Do Better? Creating a More Just and Inclusive Future."This program is sponsored by the Queens Memory COVID-19 Project of Queens College and Queens Public Library, Percy Ellis Sutton SEEK Program, Queens College Black Latinx Faculty Staff Association [BLFSA], and the Center for Ethnic, Racial, and Religious Understanding [CERRU].

With the recent murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery , the movement for Black lives and against racist policing has taken off in the United States and around the world. Rightfully so, our country is reckoning with its long history of systemic racism and white supremacy. Join the Queens Memory Project for an online discussion with scholars and members of the Queens College community about the historical context of racism in the United States and in the educational system, and what we can do now to create positive change for current and future generations.This program is the first panel in our 3-part series, titled “How Can We Do Better? Creating a More Just and Inclusive Future."This program is sponsored by the Queens Memory COVID-19 Project of Queens College and Queens Public Library, Percy Ellis Sutton SEEK Program, Queens College Black Latinx Faculty Staff Association [BLFSA], and the Center for Ethnic, Racial, and Religious Understanding [CERRU].

Professor Christos P. Ioannides was set to lecture April 1 on his recent book, Cyprus under British Colonial Rule. We will update you when a new date has been scheduled.
Applications are due March 22!
We’re partnering with QC’s Center for Career Engagement and Internships to spread the word about CUNY Service Corps, a program that matches QC students with paid internships at local nonprofits and government agencies.
The deadline is March 22, so check out their website to learn more.
With baseball art and artifacts from a variety of private collections, this is a perfect event to welcome in Spring!
On display February 18-March 15 in the Queens College Art Center: Rosenthal Library, Level 6.
All centrally-hosted library services (OneSearch, Classic Catalog and Find it! @ CUNY) will be intermittently unavailable while the CUNY Office of Computing & Information Services migrates applications and services from the 57th St. data center to the new Hudson St. data center on December 14–15, 2019.
What does this mean for me?
Over the weekend, you may experience problems with:
- viewing library account details like current loans and due dates
- renewing items
- placing intra-CUNY holds requests (CLICS)
- accessing full-text journal articles and ebooks through OneSearch
- viewing whether a book is available or checked out
The Classic Catalog will be completely unavailable during the migration. OneSearch will allow searching and viewing results, but no real-time data or full-text links will be available. Also, Find it! @ CUNY links will not work in WorldCat or databases.
How will I do my research?
Databases with full-text article and ebook access will still be available from our A-Z list. If you are looking for a specific article, your best bet is to use the library’s Journal Finder. Simply enter the journal title to see a list of databases that provide full-text access. And you will still be able to search the library’s collections using OneSearch (only real-time data like whether a book is checked out will be affected) or find full-text articles using Google Scholar.
Can I still check out books?
Yes, the library will have manual checkouts in place when the systems are down over the weekend.
Applications will go down at 6:00 AM on Saturday, December 14, 2019. The maintenance window officially ends at 6:00 PM on Sunday, December 15, 2019, though we are hopeful that the library systems will be up long before then. We apologize for any inconvenience these disruptions may cause at this moment in the semester.
