What big change are you implementing that is helping your library transform?
One of the more recent big changes that we are implementing is the incorporation of more Brooklyn-based documentaries into our media collection. The Ursula C. Schwerin Library, serving the New York City College of Technology of the City University of New York (CUNY), is located in downtown Brooklyn. It’s a melting pot within a melting pot of sorts. By incorporating films and cinema highlighting local happenings, I feel that students are exposed to issues and events happening in their own backyard that they may be unaware of.
