Listening Sessions with Hunter College Librarians

Questions about the Hunter College Libraries? We're here to listen. We know you have lots of questions about access to library services and resources for yourself and your students for the coming semester. We want to hear them. Therefore we invite you to join Hunter College librarians at an upcoming listening session where you can ask questions and discuss your concerns. At these half-hour sessions, Hunter librarians will be available to listen and take note of any questions that arise. We will then use the questions you ask us to develop subsequent faculty-focused workshops and online content intended to address your most pressing questions.

Note from OER Librarians

The library buildings may be closed, but the librarians are still working remotely to help you with research, finding resources, and more. Our Ask a Librarian chat service is operating 24/7 with librarians available to answer your questions. If a Hunter or CUNY librarian is not available (in the middle of the night, for example), a librarian from another institution will work with you and refer the question to a Hunter librarian if necessary. You can also e-mail us and a librarian will get back to you.

Open Educational Resources at Hunter Libraries

Finding Open Educational Resources (textbooks, courseware, and ancillary materials which can be freely used, reused, and remixed) can be a daunting task. Adding to this frustration is the fact that OERs are as diverse as the disciplines which seek to employ them. There is no “one size fits all” OER. Enter the Hunter Library’s OER office and our showcase OER repository Open Educational Resources (OER): A Libguide. Though digital pedagogy, digital tools, and OER materials represent a paradigm shift in the way education is provided, the library continues to be the faculty’s guide to available resources and information technologies.

Coffee & Pedagogy on First Fridays: Developing a discussion group focused on teaching in the library

You might not know this, but librarians at Hunter do a good bit of teaching. We manage hundreds of invited class sessions every semester as well as many sections of a semester long credit-bearing research course. We teach first year students and doctoral students and everything in between. We care about teaching well and we want to get better at doing it. One thing we do to improve our teaching is set aside a dedicated time each month to get together with colleagues in our department and talk about it.
