Finding books: primary and secondary sources
What is it?
CUNY+ is the CUNY-wide Library Catalog. The Catalog is a database of the materials (books, e-books, DVDs, journal titles, etc.) that are held at each library in the CUNY system. The fastest, most efficient way to search for things in our Libraries.
Try a keyword search (e.g., "japanese internment"), then look for Subject Headings to use in a more precise search (e.g., S=Japanese Americans -- Evacuation and relocation, 1942-1945.)
- Questions? See this videocast tutorial on subject searching
- You can use CUNY+ to order books from other CUNY libraries. Maximum number of books you can order: 50 total. Learn how here: http://library.gc.cuny.edu/info/clics.html
Focusing on Primary Sources: websites and databases
Focusing on Secondary sources: Scholarly Articles
How do I find full-text?
To Request Articles
- From any database use to determine the availability of the journal article you are looking for, or, if you are not already within a database, search the Journal Title List or CUNY+ to determine whether Hunter College owns the journal title, volume, and issue you need.
- If a journal is available at Hunter College, do not request article via Interlibrary loan
- If a journal is unavailable at Hunter College, request article via Interlibrary loan
- If a Hunter College journal is missing, request it via ILL with note.
- Articles and book chapters are delivered in PDF format.
