Hostos Library Collections at a Glance:
Use the OneSearch tool to find library holdings at Hostos and all libraries in CUNY. Or explore our A-Z list of nearly 200 databases. Students, faculty, and staff can borrow books from most CUNY campus libraries through the CLICS system and have them delivered to Hostos Library.
Use the link below to place a textbook or other item on Reserve for your students.
During the COVID-19 emergency, many Hostos students lost access to a lifeline—the Library’s Reserve Textbook Collection. When the Library is able to safely re-open, we will not be able to offer the short-term loans of reserve textbooks because of the time needed to quarantine between check-outs. Click on the link below to learn how the Hostos Library can help.
To give students access to any of the Library’s subscription articles in Blackboard, you can build a link that will ask them to login with their Hostos Library account.
The link will be made up of two parts: the “proxy string” and the “permalink” (stable URL) of the article. The proxy string is always the same ( http://hostos.ezproxy.cuny.edu/login?url= ) and then the article’s permalink is pasted in right after that equals sign (=). To retrieve an article’s permalink, follow these steps:
Example with "proxy string" + "permalink": http://hostos.ezproxy.cuny.edu/login?url=https://onesearch.cuny.edu/primo-explore/fulldisplay?docid=TN_gvrl_refCX3469800672&context=PC&vid=ho&search_scope=everything&tab=default_tab&lang=en_US
