Brooklyn College Archives, 2900 Bedford Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11210

Hours and Appointments

The Archives is open to CUNY students, faculty, and staff on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 10 am to 4:45 pm by appointment only.  Please send us an email to schedule an appointment. 

Reference Inquiries

Due to the COVID-19 related closure of the Brooklyn College campus, there is a substantial backlog of unanswered reference inquiries.  With the fall 2021 reopening of the Library, staff can now begin to research and respond to these questions.  

If you have a question regarding our archival collections, please send us an email. Currently, we cannot predict response times since we have limited staff on campus.  Your patience is greatly appreciated.
