The Library at SIA-NY

The libary at SIA-New York currently holds over 8,000 titles and subscribes to over 65 periodicals. The books can be checked out except for a small number of reference titles that may not leave the library.

Quiet Study Area and Library Facilities
We offer three workstations in our quiet study area, equipped with a printer (for research results only). The computers do NOT have MS Word, MS Excel or MS Powerpoint. We encourage students to bring their laptops and connect to our wireless network.

Printing Facilities
Two print workstations with the MS Office suite are available in the student cafe area for students wishing to print papers and assignments. Printing costs 10¢ per page for black and white and 50¢ per page for colour (20% discount for duplex printing). All students are set up with a personal print account and a credit of $2 (= 10 free B&W pages). See the signs by the print workstations for full instructions.

Photocopying & Scanning
We have one photocopier available for student use at the cost of 10¢ per page for black and white, and 50¢ per page for color copies. The machines accept coins and bills up to $5. For large copy jobs, students can request a copy card from the librarians and add larger amounts to the cards. There is also a scan station in the library. The scanner has an 11 x 17" bed and will send scans (for free) to a USB drive, Google Docs or email account.
