CLICS for CUNY Books: About

How to Request Books from CUNY Libraries

More information on CLICS

CLICS is accessible from any computer connected to the Internet.

You can search and request from OneSearch using any browser from any location.

CLICS is the preferred choice for requesting books from CUNY Libraries.

At some campuses, you can use Interlibrary Loan (ILL) to handle intercampus library requests. However, CLICS is easier to use, is faster, and is open to all CUNY students, faculty and staff. At campuses where you can use either CLICS or ILL, there may also be smaller limits on the number of concurrent Interlibrary Loan requests or fees charged to you.

More information on CLICS is provided by Circulation staff members.

Contact staff at the Circulation Desk at any of the CUNY Libraries if you have further questions about CLICS.

Use CUNY Libraries Inter-Campus Services (CLICS) to request an item from another CUNY Library.
If you find a book in the catalog that is not in the Brooklyn College Library but is available at another CUNY library, you can use CLICS to request that it be sent to our Library for you to pick up. You will be notified by email when the book is available.

An email notification will be sent to your Brooklyn College email address.  If the book is not available, you will receive an email notice.
