Using Google Scholar

Did you know that you can link Google Scholar to the York Library's databases?

Google Scholar is free and indexes content from many academic publishers, but many of the links it provides are not free.  Since the York Library has subscriptions to some of the materials included in Google Scholar, we have set up links between it and some of our reference databases.

If you are using a computer on the York campus, Google Scholar will recognize the IP address and you will see links to the right of some of the citations that say "Find full-text at York."

If you are using a computer from off-campus, be sure to connect to Google Scholar using the link from the Library's database and more page, which will automatically let Google know that you are from York College and enable you to see the "Find full-text at York" links.  Otherwise, if you connect to Google Scholar directly on your own without using the York link, you would have to click on "Scholar Preferences" in the upper right corner; then, in the box next to Library Links, type York College CUNY; then click "Save Preferences."  That will ensure that the full-text links connect to the York College Library.  It's easier to just use the direct link from the York Library site.

CUNY Login Replacing Barcodes for Remote Access
The Library has transitioned from the use of the barcode to the CUNY Login for off-campus access to databases. (It's the same login used for Blackboard and CUNYfirst.)

Goodbye Catalog Hello OneSearch
The CUNY classic catalog (CUNY+) will disappear after July 2020. Fortunately, OneSearch can provide access to even more resources than the classic catalog could.

The Library now has an outdoor book drop for returning items outside the entrance to the loading dock on 160th Street.
