Access & Borrowing

CUNY Students, Faculty, Staff (including faculty retirees)

CUNY students, faculty, and staff with current CUNY photo ID may visit and borrow from any CUNY library, but do not have borrowing privileges at the CUNY School of Law Library. Access to licensed electronic resources is available to all on-site visitors. (Some resources require users to create an individual account with their GC email address. Non-GC visitors unfortunately cannot use those resources.)

CUNY School of Professional Studies

CUNY School of Professional Studies students obtain a CUNY SPS photo ID for borrowing privileges (4 weeks for most materials) from all CUNY libraries except the CUNY School of Law. SPS students must obtain a CUNY photo ID from the SPS Office of Security and Public Safety (646-664-8600). SPS students may access the CUNY-wide databases from off-campus using their 14-digit SPS library barcode to authenticate. SPS students do not have interlibrary loan privileges.
