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.

Presented by ARIA, The Association to Reunite Italian Americans at Queens College
Prof. Nicola Lucchi, Lecturer in the Department of European Languages and Literatures, will discuss Margherita Sarfatti’s 1937 travelogue. In particular, he will illustrate how Sarfatti, a major Italian intellectual and, at one point, Mussolini’s lover, considered the Italian American linguistic identity as an antidote to ideas of racial purity. This event is co-sponsored by the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute.
Light refreshments will be served
