Using WorldCat & ILL

You can locate books at most academic and public libraries around the world through WorldCat.

If you find a book not available in CUNY or the NYPL, we can write you a pass to go to another major university library in the city that may have it.

FOR GRADUATE STUDENTS: Double check the library's catalog to make sure the item you want is not available in CUNY. Then make your request using our automated interlibrary loan service: ILLIAD
