Non-GC CUNY alumni (except CUNY BA alumni) who wish to access the Graduate Center Library must join the Graduate Center Friends of the Library and Library Associates. Membership at the $250 level allows on-site access to the Graduate Center library for 1 year. A $1000 contribution is acknowledged by a year of borrowing privileges at the Graduate Center library only. Off-campus access to databases, interlibrary loan, and intra-CUNY borrowing are not possible for alumni given the structure of licensing agreements.
