Access & Borrowing

GC Faculty, GC Staff & CUNY Doctoral Faculty (PSC)

Graduate Center faculty and PSC staff (including Advanced Science Research Center faculty and PSC staff), as well as CUNY doctoral faculty, are eligible for all library privileges listed below for the period of appointment.

All faculty appointments are authorized by the GC's Office of the Provost, often prompted by a letter from a GC Executive Officer. The Office of the Provost gives authorization for a Graduate Center photo ID card. Bring the ID card to the Circulation Desk (1st floor) for a barcode sticker; the ID card will then serve as library card.
