Access & Borrowing

CUNY School of Professional Studies Students, Faculty, and Staff

CUNY School of Professional Studies students, faculty, and staff obtain a CUNY SPS photo ID for borrowing privileges (4 weeks for most materials) from all CUNY libraries except the CUNY School of Law.  SPS affiliates must obtain a CUNY photo ID from the SPS Office of Security and Public Safety (646-664-8600).

SPS affiliates may access the CUNY-wide databases from off-campus using their 14-digit SPS library barcode to authenticate. SPS affiliates do not have interlibrary loan privileges.
