Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

If you are unable to locate the material at Hostos or another CUNY library, consider doing an interlibrary loan (ILL) request. For articles there is a quick turn around, but for books and other materials this request may take some time. For more information, visit the interlibrary loan guide, or talk to a librarian.
