Travel, Tourism & Hospitality Research Guide: Library Essentials

Guide for all students doing research in our TT&H program as well as course specific research information when instructors request it.

The Library, like classes, is now completely online. Read more about our services.

The LaGuardia Library has transitioned to fully remote services due to the rapidly evolving coronavirus threat. We’re prepared to help students, faculty, and staff get the full Library experience without having to come to campus during this challenging global event.
