Search for Books


The Graduate Center Library provides access to many electronic books, which can be found in OneSearch.

Note: Only those ebooks that list "Graduate Center" or "CUNY" under Holdings are accessible at the GC and ASRC.  Ebooks owned by other CUNY libraries can only be accessed by GC and ASRC users by physically visiting that library.

For much more information about the library's ebook offerings, including a list of the library's ebook collections, see the E-Books guide.

Borrowing from Other Libraries

If the Graduate Center does not have the book you need, you can have it delivered from another library:

  • CLICS Intra-CUNY Lending: Using OneSearch, you can request to have a book from one CUNY library delivered to another CUNY library of your choice (Graduate Center, City College, etc.).
  • Interlibrary Loan (ILL): If the book you need is not available at the Graduate Center, you can request it via interlibrary loan. The library will obtain a copy from another library and deliver it to you at the ASRC. If you have questions or need help placing your request, email
