CUNY Libraries Inter-Campus Services (CLICS)

If you find a book in CUNY+ that is not in the City College library but is available at another CUNY library, you can request that it be sent to our Library for you to pick up. You will be notified by email when the book is available.

To use CLICS, your e-mail address must be in your library circulation record. Stop by the Circulation Desk or call 650-7155 to verify that it has been entered. An e-mail notification will be sent to you when the book is available. The book will normally be available to you within 48 hours of your request. If the book is not available, you will receive an e-mail notice.
