At the 68th Street campus, the Leon & Toby Cooperman Library occupies nine floors in the East Building, with entrances to the library on the 3rd and 7th floors. The Cooperman Library is home to the Hunter College Archives & Special Collections (Floor 2), the Silverstein Student Success Center (Floor 7), and the Education Library (Floor 6). Also at the 68th Street campus, the Zabar Art Library is located on the 16th Floor of the North Building.

Our team of faculty, staff, and student workers is dedicated to helping our users. Faculty librarians assist people with research questions from the simple to the complex both in-person and online via our Ask-a-librarian service, as well as partnering with classroom faculty to teach information literacy instruction to various classes. Library staff and students provide excellent service to users at a variety of service points throughout all our libraries.
The Libraries’ print and electronic collections include hundreds of thousands of books, ebooks, and periodicals, as well as unique archival content in our Archives & Special Collections. Through our robust collection of online resources, in addition to periodicals and ebooks, the Hunter community can access primary sources, historical documents, science and social science datasets, streaming media, digital images, and much more.
Our spaces include collaborative work areas, reservable study rooms, and areas for quiet study. Additionally, we provide desktop, laptop, and tablet computers as well as printers, photocopiers, scanners, whiteboards, and lots of electrical outlets.
