Newman Library Access Policy

Access to the Newman Library is generally restricted to current students*, faculty and staff of the City University of New York and the Baruch College Campus High School, as well as retired CUNY faculty. Access is also permitted for current faculty and students of Empire State College with a valid Empire State College identification card.


Baruch College Alumni who are interested in library access should contact the Alumni Relations Office for instructions on how to obtain a library access card.

Residents of the New York metropolitan area who need access to specific materials in the Newman Library that are not available in the public library system should contact their local library about obtaining a referral card.


Other individuals with an ongoing need for access to the Newman Library, including alumni of other CUNY campuses, are encouraged to apply for membership in the Friends of the Newman Library.

* Please note that following a policy adopted by the CUNY Council of Chief Librarians, students from campuses where ID cards do not have validation stickers need to present a Bursar's receipt for access to other CUNY libraries.  Students who want to obtain a Bursar's receipt should contact their campus library or the Bursar's office on their home campus.
