CUNY OneSearch

Books Beyond the GC

If the Graduate Center does not have the book you need, you can have the book sent here from another library.


The Graduate Center Library provides access to many electronic books, which can be found in the library's OneSearch discovery tool.

Note: Only those ebooks that list "Graduate Center" or "CUNY" under Holdings are accessible at the Graduate Center (or off-site to GC users).  Ebooks owned by other CUNY libraries can only be accessed by GC 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 LibGuide.
