Faculty Guide

A quick guide to the Hunter College Libraries for all faculty members.

Off-campus Library Access

You can access all of the Libraries electronic resources remotely - on a home computer, a tablet, and/or a smart phone.

Online Catalog

Our online catalog allows you the option to search all CUNY libraries' collections at once, or select an individual school's holdings. If you want to go directly to the catalog book search, select "Books" in the search options on the home page.

OneSearch is a new discovery tool that allows you to search the CUNY catalog as well as a large index of periodicals and other resources.

You can access OneSearch and the Books search from the Hunter College Libraries homepage.

Electronic Books

The CUNY+ catalog contains print and electronic books.  The catalog record specifies eBooks as "electronic resource" and provides a link to the full-text.

This proxy library card will be associated with your library account.  Therefore items borrowed with it will have a loan period of 6 weeks, you may renew them through your online library account and you will be responsible for any fines incurred related to overdue or lost items.
