St. Augustine Hall, Queens
The Main Library is truly the crossroads of the Queens Campus:
in the fall 2002 semester our gate count indicates an average of
19,000 students, faculty, staff, administrators, and community
members visited the Library each week.
The Main Library is also the largest of the University Libraries in
size of collection and number of special services provided. The
University Archives, Special Collections, a preservation lab, and
the Media and Instructional Materials Centers are all located in
There are three group study rooms (reservations required - ask at
the Circulation Desk, 3rd floor), in addition to the main
reading rooms on the 3rd and 4th floors. There is also a Quiet
Study area in the north wing of the first floor.
