Books Outside of CUNY

New York Public Library:

Click here to search for books on Ernesto Sabato at the New York Public Library. Keep in mind that, as of Sept. 19, 2020, the major NYPL research collections are closed. They are offering a Scan and Deliver Service for NYPL library cardholders (see this link for more information:  https://www.nypl.org/research/scan-and-deliver ), which you can use to request scans of a portion of a book in their collection. If you don't have an NYPL card, you can apply for one online.


Libraries Worldwide:

Search the WorldCat catalog for books in libraries throughout the US and the world. Try entering "Ernesto Sabato" in the keyword field, then narrowing the results to books.

Click on a title to see more information about the book. If Hunter and/or CUNY own a copy, this will be indicated. If not, click on the blue "Find it @ CUNY" button, and you will be given the option to order a copy through our Interlibrary Loan service.


About Interlibrary Loan:

If you need a book that Hunter doesn't own, and no other CUNY library owns a copy, you can request it through our InterLibrary Loan (ILL) service, free of charge to Hunter students, staff, and faculty. Undergraduate Hunter students are allowed 5 interlibrary loans at one time. Keep in mind that the book must be physically shipped to Hunter from somewhere else, so in most cases this takes at least a week.

You can also use InterLibrary Loan to request any article or book chapter that the Hunter Libraries don't own. These are delivered to you electronically in pdf format, and generally arrive much more quickly.

Currently, while library spaces are closed, we are not able to deliver books through our Interlibrary Loan service. However, you can use the Interlibrary Loan system to request articles or book chapters.
