NYC Council Funding
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.
