Director’s Corner


Welcome to the Touro College Libraries’ blog.  We plan on providing the Touro community with informational tidbits and updates about our libraries.  Join us in touring the Touro College Libraries and keeping up with our happenings.

Currently, we are excited to share with you our two newest initiatives.  iPads are now available for circulation at two Touro libraries.  Midwood (Ave J) and Midtown (23rd Street) libraries have iPads for student and faculty use for 24-hour checkout.  Additionally, the library at Kew Gardens Hills has recently acquired an iPad cart containing 20 iPads for library classroom instructional use – Information Literacy on wheels.  Every indication is that it has been very well received by the students. (Check out our Facebook for more photos!)

We look forward to sharing with you other library news. Touro College Libraries will keep you updated as we work to anticipate and meet your ongoing needs for research and information.
