Anthropocene

What sort of cities have you lived in before?  What do you hope cities will offer in your lifetime?

After watching Anthropocene and listening to the discussion, the following books and resources can help you further explore opinions and opportunities for research.  If you don’t know which topics might be relevant, visit Oxford Bibliographies and search Anthropocene.  The results run the gamut from Conservative Biogeography to Common World Childhoods, Paleolimnology to Water Availability.  Whenever you are starting a new research topic, these bibliographies offer a short introduction explaining the leading arguments and variety of viewpoints.  Ask a librarian for help to “Find this resource”–sometimes the links break, but we can find another path.

Our Library Space Is For All

Some of you have raised concerns that our library space is not meeting your expectations in terms of noise level and seat availability.

Our Library is a space that strives to accommodate the various types of learning activities, be it silent self-study, or light group discussions. We rely on you, the responsible student, to maintain that balance and harmony. Please be mindful of your peers’ needs when you are in the library. It is as simple as

  • Making the space pleasant for others – no seat hogging or reserving with your personal belongings.
  • Having group study and discussion outside of Silent Zone.
  • Keeping your voices low when using the group study room as the rooms are not fully soundproof.

Remember that our library space is for the entire NYU community. Let’s be considerate to one another.
