As we acclimate to the new demands of social distancing and online learning, working, and living, the library will be reaching out and checking in with students and faculty in different ways.
Research Tip of the Day
It’s week 11 of the semester and you are almost there! Now, all classes go online. What do you do if you have a really deficient Internet connection or no Internet access at all?
You are not alone. Recognizing that many college students are grappling with the same problem right now, some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have signed the Federal Communications Committee “Keep America Connected Pledge” to provide low-cost or free, high-speed Internet access to those who need it during this crisis.
Certain companies operating in NYC such as Altice and Comcast are offering free service for new customers. Other major providers such as AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile are making their low-cost plans more robust. See the full list of companies and plans here.
