Here’s the Access Services Desk, which is where FIT students and workers can check out all kinds of books and tools. This desk is on the 5th floor of the Goodman Resource Center. We’re on the southwest corner of 7th Avenue and 27th street, and the FIT Museum is in the lobby.

And here’s the Research & Instructional Services Desk, where we help students, faculty and staff, and visitors figure out which materials will help them most. This desk is right across the library lobby from the Access Services Desk.

We’re waiting to help you with your projects! See you soon!

Have a great few weeks!
