One-Day METRO Referral Access

New York City reference librarians, including librarians at the Graduate Center, can issue referrals to visit other NYC libraries to use specific items there.

Identify a book, journal, CD, DVD, database, or other resource at a METRO member library that is not available at CUNY or at NYPL, Queens Public Library, or Brooklyn Public Library.

Request a METRO referral in person at the Reference Desk on the 2nd floor of the GC Library. See the METRO Member Directory.

METRO referrals grant one-time, day-long, on-site use of a specific item verified in a library catalog. Access is limited to the specific item or subject and does not guarantee unlimited access to a library. Consult with your referring librarian to make sure items are available for you when you visit.
