Brooklyn Extension Sites

East New York

The East New York Extension Program is located in IS 292. The address is:
303 Vermont Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, 11207.

Approximately 50 students are registered to obtain an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts.

Coordinator of User Services Peter Salber wishes to welcome you:

THE LIU COMPUTER NETWORK The LIU computers at the East New York Extension Site provide Internet access; however, at time of posting they are not connected to the LIU network and, therefore, do not provide full, on-campus access to journal databases. In order to do so, you need to click on off-campus databases and input your LIU library barcode

The Brooklyn Campus Library has a separate web site highlighting its resources and services, which can be reached by clicking Library Home button on the left side of the screen. You can search the computerized catalog by clicking “LIUCAT” located at the top of the screen (LIUCAT contains catalog information for all LIU campuses.)

If you are on the main campus, you can click “Online Databases” and be connected to the various databases subscribed to by the Brooklyn Campus. By scrolling down through the A to Z List Of Indexes, you can see all of the available databases – clicking on the name of any one will connect you to that database.  Most of the database are available "off-campus" as well; however, you need a library barcode which you can obtain at the Circulation Desk, 5th floor of the Library Learning Center. For a more detailed explanation of LIUCAT and the databases, see Library Guide 11, “Library Databases on the Internet,” located near the Reference Desk.

LIBRARY INSTRUCTION

Classes in how to use the Library’s resources, including the databases, are held at the Library each semester.  Arrangements may also be made for library instruction at the East New York Extension Site.  These may be held as part of an Orientation Seminar or as part of another course.  Faculty members may arrange with the Library’s reference staff for library instruction customized for a particular course or assignment.

 IF YOU NEED HELP

Reference Librarians are available at the Brooklyn Campus Library whenever the Library is open.  To get help during these hours, call the Reference Desk at (718) 780-4513.

BORROWING MATERIALS

All members of the LIU community may borrow material from the circulating collections.  In order to do so, however, a special Library barcode must be attached to the LIU ID card.  Registration forms for this purpose must be submitted to the Circulation Desk on the 5th floor of the Library. Forms may be obtained by calling the librarian responsible for Extension Sites, Paul Tremblay, at 718 246-6382.

USING OTHER LIBRARIES

It is recommended that students obtain a public library card and use public libraries when they can’t travel to the Brooklyn Campus. Branches of the Brooklyn Public Library close to the East New York site are located at:

Arlington Branch   203 Arlington Ave. (at Warwick)  tel:  (718) 277-6105
Brownsville Branch  61 Glenmore Ave. (at Watkins) tel:  (718) 498-9721
New Lots Branch  665 New Lots Ave. (at Barbey)    tel: (718) 649-0311
Stone Avenue Branch  330 Powell Street (at Blake)    tel: (718) 922-4570

The advantage of a Brooklyn Public Library card is that it permits Internet access from any computer to a number of full-text databases and reference works, including an online encyclopedia.

The New York Public Library is a separate library system, but anyone who lives, works, pays taxes, or goes to school in New York State may join.  It too permits (with a NYPL card) Internet access from any computer to a number of full-text databases and reference works, including an encyclopedia. For those living in Queens, take advantage of the Queens Borough Public Library system with its 62 branches.

The Brooklyn Campus Library is also a member of Academic Libraries of Brooklyn (ALB), which includes Brooklyn College, Medgar Evers College, New York City College of Technology, Polytechnic University, Pratt Institute, St. Francis College, and St. Joseph’s College.  A special ALB card, which allows semester-long use of any of these libraries, can be obtained from the 5th floor Circulation Desk.

LIU’s membership in the library consortium known as METRO allows students to use materials in another library if that library is the only source for those materials.  METRO cards can be obtained from the Reference Department (3rd floor), after a librarian has made arrangements for your visit.

AS A REGISTERED STUDENT OF LIU, YOU ARE ALWAYS WELCOME TO VISIT THE LIBRARY ON THE BROOKLYN CAMPUS.  THE LIBRARIANS AND LIBRARY STAFF ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO SO.
