Today, we have upgraded our ILL service by migrating to the ILLiad product that is directly linked to WorldCat. When you click on our request page for the first time, you are a new user, so please click the “First Time User” link to set up your account. Once that’s done, you’ll log in with your user name and password. A CCNY email address is required to use ILL services, so make sure you have activated yours. For information about using ILL services, please see our Interlibrary Loan Services (ILL) page.

BookScan Station Available

Filed under: Facilities — Tags: , — pam @ 11:03 am

Cohen Library has added a walk-up book scanning station to allow everyone to insert their own USB flash drive to scan and convert book pages, journal articles and individual documents into PDFs, Word or Excel files. Find the BookScan Station on the 2nd floor in the Reference computer area.  A second station will soon be available in the Science/Engineering Library.  These new units were made possible by Student Tech Fee funding. And remember, if you don’t have a USB drive, you can purchase one at any Library circulation counter.
