Visiting Libraries Outside CUNY

The New York Public Library (NYPL Research Libraries) offers borrowing privileges, study rooms, and off-site access to e-resources.

MaRLI, the Manhattan Research Libraries Network, allows those approved by NYPL to visit and borrow from Columbia and NYU Libraries.

METRO referrals allow single-day, on-site access to NYC libraries, based on the need for an item that is otherwise unavailable.

SHARES extends university and museum library on-site access to visitors with a current GC photo ID.

GC Interlibrary Loan delivers most resources from other libraries to the GC for pickup.
