The Library Services of the CUNY School of Public Health provide access to electronic resources through a partnership with the City College of New York.

SPH does not house a physical library in the traditional sense, as our services are comprised primarily of online resources such as database subscriptions and access to public health-related journals electronically. The library does have a selection of books on reserve for student use on site in Room 704.
