Finding Print Materials at Nearby Libraries

Keep in mind that the majority of books on any subject are simply not available online. This means that you may need to locate print materials at your nearest SUNY or CUNY or public library. As an Empire State College student, you can access and borrow from the circulating print collections of any SUNY or CUNY library with your college photo ID.

To find print books and other materials on the shelves of libraries near you, follow the step-by-step instructions here: WorldCat Instructions
