THE LIBRARY IS OPEN ONLINE! While our physical spaces remain closed, the CCNY Libraries team is working remotely to make library resources and services available online.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) allows you to borrow articles and book chapters that are NOT accessible at City College. Watch this short video on how to request articles via ILL.
City College faculty, undergraduate and graduate students, and staff with a current CCNY ID and an unblocked library account may use this service. Request limits are as follows
Electronically-delivered articles take approximately 24-48 hours, Monday-Friday. Requests submitted on the weekend will be processed on Mondays. Login to your ILL account here to track your requests.
We are currently unable to request loans of physical books. Once we are able to borrow books again, the library from where the item originates determines renewal policies, so be sure to return ILL items on time.To renew your ILL books, login to your ILLiad account and click on the View/Renew Checked Out Items button. We will inform you of your new due date once we hear from the lending library.
We are currently unable to request loans of physical books. Once we are able to borrow books again, the overdue fine is $1.00 per day per item. If an item expires on the shelf, there is a fine of $10 per item for not picking it up (since there are shipping, packing and processing fees involved in each transaction).
