WHAT IS IT?
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.
If you need a book that Hunter does not own, search the catalog for other CUNY schools that may have the title you need.
You can borrow books from other CUNY schools through CLICS: CUNY Libraries InterCampus Service. Click this link to learn how to borrow materials using CLICS. Books at Centro are listed in the library catalog.
Newspapers are an excellent primary source. You can find first hand accounts of events that took place in the past.
