How do I...?

Library tutorials

...Find books at York College Library?

Use the online catalog to check to see if we own a book.

...Get books from other CUNY libraries (CLICS)?

CLICS lets you request books from other CUNY libraries right through the library catalog, Books and More.

...Read a citation?

In order to locate the item that is cited, you have to understand if it's a journal article or a book chapter.

...Use Interlibrary Loan (ILL)?

Through interlibrary loan loan, you can request articles not available at York and books not available through CUNY.

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.
