Faculty Research at Hostos: Hostos Library Basics

Hostos Library Basics

Hostos Library's mission is not only to support students by providing information resources and academic support, but also faculty in their pursuit of scholarship, research, and course development. We are fortunate to be part of the rich research environments of CUNY, with its 20 libraries, and New York City, with a world-class public research library. This guide introduces Hostos faculty to the information resources available to you on campus and beyond.

Hostos library has a collection of close to 50,000 print books and nearly 100,000 e-books. All print and online books and journals are findable through the catalog.

Hostos also provides access to nearly 100 full-text research databases covering a range of subjects. As a part of the City University of New York system of libraries, we have access to a resources not normally available to community colleges. All databases and e-books are available to users on campus, and off-campus with a Hostos ID validated in the library.  See our full listing of databases..

All academic departments are assigned a library liaison who will work with you to ensure that the library has the information you need for research and teaching.
