OneSearch combines many initial searches into one interface: it includes the CUNY library catalog; a massive index of articles from journals, magazines, and newspapers; and unique digital content. For more details, see our OneSearch blog post series.
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.
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.
This resource collects materials about the research process and helps researchers design their projects. Search for a particular research approach (i.e. qualitative, quantitative, ethnographic) and see descriptions and examples from books, dictionaries, encyclopedias, handbooks, journals, and videos.
