New York City Council Funds New
Archives and Library Facility
November 2004 marks the most important milestone in the history of the CUNY DSI Archives and Library with the receipt of a $1.407 million dollar capital funding allocation from the New York City Council for the construction of a new facility to house the repository for archival and library collections. The new space also includes a multipurpose reference/exhibition space, and administrative/processing areas. In addition to the City Council funding, the City College of New York provided a total of 2,950 square feet of prime space adjacent to College's Cohen Library. The new facility became fully operational in 2008.
