Search for books, journals, and audiovisual materials at all CUNY libraries. If a book is not available at the Graduate Center but is available at another CUNY library, you can have it delivered to the Graduate Center by clicking Request. Reference books, reserve books, special collections, audiovisual materials, periodicals, and electronic books may not be requested.
Use this service to ask reference questions at any time. E-mail questions will be answered by Graduate Center librarians. Chat questions may be answered by librarians at other institutions. Please do not use this service for circulation, interlibrary loan, or Information Technology questions. Contact these departments directly.
This research initiative allows selected researchers access and circulation privileges at Columbia University, New York University, and New York Public Library's research libraries. To be eligible, you must have a NYPL library card and demonstrate research need.
All CUNY students and faculty have access to all CUNY libraries and may check out books at all but CUNY Law. Reference books, special collections, audiovisual materials, and electronic resources may be used only within these libraries.
Metro Referral Cards
Ask at the reference desk on the second floor of the Graduate Center library for one-time-only passes to New York City area libraries, beyond CUNY.
If items are available at a CUNY library, you would use CLICs (Inter-library borrowing) or visit that library in person; Metro Cards are used for one-time to access beyond CUNY's collections. For longer access, see MaRLI above.
