As an important part of "Patron-Initiated Document Delivery Services," CUNY has implemented a new library service, CLICS [CUNY Libraries Inter- Campus Services, or CUNY Intra Campus Library Service], through which one can place a book request at any CUNY libraries, with the exception of her/his home library, via CUNY's online catalog <http://libraries.cuny.edu/>. The book will be sent to York College Library and we will hold it for 10 days after its arrival for you to check out. This is in addition to our traditional Interlibrary Loan service, which also covers libraries outside CUNY system. For more information and procedure about CLICS, click here.


*Circulation and overdue fine policies of the lending library apply.

*Unblocked library account required.

*Valid email address required.

*York’s loan limit is still seven (7) books per person, thus, do not place too many hold requests through CLICS.

*Your CLICS book will be held at circulation for ten (10) days after its arrival. It will be returned to the lending library after that period.

*York students/faculty/staff cannot request CLICS service for York’s own collection.
