The LP2 program is a non-degree program of the Graduate Center. Members of LP2 are able to access the library space at 365 Fifth Avenue by showing their Graduate Center LP2 ID upon entering the building and again just inside the library.

Once inside the library, members have full access to the library's print collections and electronic resources, and can log into computers with their GC Network ID. If you have any technical issues with your username/password, please contact IT Services:
