Bank Street Library

Welcome to the Bank Street Library

The Library is home to a children’s collection, a graduate school collection, and electronic resources (databases and computers). We offer spaces for patrons to enjoy books with little ones, work on assignments, and engage in group work. We also host several events: Library Salons, BookFest @ Bank Street, and the Irma Black Award ceremony, to name a few. We hope to see you soon on the 5th floor of Bank Street College.

Off-Campus Access to Databases

  1. Sign-in with your Bank Street email address and Password.
  2. Some online classes have their own special access code.

APA 7th Edition Cover Page

In the past APA didn’t really pay much attention to student papers, but in APA7 edition they’ve been explicit about how to create that perfect paper (it’s a simplified version of a professional paper). In this blog post we’re looking at what should go on a cover page for an assignment.
