Begin by selecting ALL CUNY Libraries in CUNY+PLUS.

After the book is located, click on the title to open the full record.

Click on Request.

Enter your 14 digit activated CUNY ID card number beginning with 22371 (no spaces).

Eligible Material
Any circulating book or CD determined to be in good condition  by the lending library.

Non-Eligible Materials
Journals, reserve, reference, special collection, and archive materials as determined by the lending library.

  1. A HOLD cannot be placed on an item held at the user’s home library.
  2. If the requested HOLD item is on the shelf and available for loan, the lending library responds “Yes” and ships the book ASAP to the CUNY library pick-up location.
  3. The item is delivered within a few business days via a delivery service which makes daily deliveries to designated CUNY libraries. 
  4. When the item arrives at the CUNY library selected by the user, an e-mail notice is automatically sent to the patron.
  5. The book is placed on the HOLD shelf for approximately 10 days. 
  6. If the book is not picked up from the HOLD shelf, it is returned to the lending library.
  7. If the book is not on the shelf, the lending library deletes or cancels the HOLD. A HOLD cancellation letter is sent to the user. The patron is free to request or place a HOLD on the book if it is available at another CUNY library.

Circulation and overdue fine policies of the lending library apply.

Patrons may renew the book in MY Account in CUNY+PLUS as long as the item is not already overdue or there is not another patron requesting the book.

*For additional assistance, please see the Circulation staff or call (718) 631-6227.
