New Armenian Studies materials

Visitors to Rosenthal Library’s Level 3 will notice a new display of books on Armenian Studies. These books were purchased through the generous donation of Hratch Zadoian, professor of political science and retired administrator at Queens College.

Associate Professor James Mellone’s new Armenian Studies research guide has comprehensive information about the new books. Please visit to learn more or to set up a research consultation.

Makerspace: ‘Busy’ is Our Middle Name!

The QC Makerspace is off to a roaring start this semester. The Makerspace is part of a 5 year, multimillion dollar grant from the National Science Foundation to incorporate its project-based learning into QC’s STEM classes, in order to improve undergraduate interest and retention in STEM programs. Congratulations to Head of Makerspace Nick Normal and his co-recipients!

The Makerspace also has a new team member, Student Aide Piphat “Filmy” Cheng. Filmy is in his final year studying graduate- level Photonics (Applied Physics), and is also a remarkable photographer.

All of us at the library welcome Filmy, and look forward to a great semester of new projects and events in the Makerspace. Stop by Rosenthal 101 and learn more!

Getting Started

Overview of Research & Resources
For information about the research process and an overview of how to use the resources the library offers, please see this set of tutorials. It includes information on starting your research, using the catalog and databases, citing your sources, and much more.
For Research in a Specific Subject Area
For a quick summary on research in a specific subject area, use our Subject Guides. They contain research subject guides to academic subjects like English Literature, as well as course guides for research in a particular course.
To Find Books
To find books, media, and other material owned by the QC Libraries and other CUNY libraries, search the CUNY Catalog.
To Find Articles
To find articles on a topic, search the Databases. Databases list scholarly journal articles, popular magazine and newspaper articles, as well as reviews, book essays, theses, and research papers. For guidance on selecting an appropriate database in your discipline, please see our Subject Guides.
To Locate a Specific Article
To locate an article when you already have the citation, you have two options:

        • Search the CUNY Catalog to find both electronic and paper copies of journals the library holds. Select Title Begins With in the box on the left and type the journal title in the search box. Helpful hint: Journals and magazines are called serials in the catalog.
        • Search Electronic Journals for the full-text periodicals we have online. Search for the periodical title. Then check whether we own the periodical for the year and issue which contains the article you need.
