MarLI access is available to Columbia's Butler Library and NYU Libraries at this time (as of September 2022).

Visiting Libraries Outside CUNY

The New York Public Library (NYPL Research Libraries) offers borrowing privileges, study rooms, and off-site access to e-resources.

MaRLI, the Manhattan Research Libraries Network, allows those approved by NYPL to visit and borrow from Columbia and NYU Libraries.

METRO referrals allow single-day, on-site access to NYC libraries, based on the need for an item that is otherwise unavailable. [Due to continued COVID closures, some libraries may not be available. Check with a librarian for more information.]

SHARES extends university and museum library on-site access to visitors with a current GC photo ID.

GC Interlibrary Loan delivers most resources from other libraries to the GC for pickup.
