CCNY-Schomburg Partnership A Boon For Undergraduate Researchers


A new collaboration between City College and the Schomburg, a research division of The New York Public Library, will help undergraduates hone their research skills and enrich their access to this treasure trove of more than 11 million items.

Conceptualized by CCNY’s English Department and its MFA in Creative Writing Program, this joint effort includes a new undergraduate course to be taught by William Gibbons, assistant professor in CCNY’s Library Archives, next spring.
