We're working on a new and improved Library Website. To see our Beta site, go here.

Access to BMCC Library’s resources from off-campus is changing!

Instead of using your BMCC user name and password you will use the barcode on the back of your BMCC ID card. Your barcode starts with the numbers 214.

This change takes effect as of August 27, 2019. Please contact us with any questions or concerns at library@bmcc.cuny.edu or call, 212-220-1451 during library hours.

Check out our new Manga Collection!

manga display 2019The Library has been growing its manga collection, which is currently expanding at a rapid rate. Manga is the Japanese word for comics and are incredibly popular, spanning all genres and demographics.

The manga is part of the Library’s leisure reading collection and can be borrowed for four weeks at a time.

As this collection is currently growing, we may not yet have every title you’re looking for or the next volume you need. If you’re looking for something we don’t yet have, please see our guide on how to get books from other libraries including the rest of CUNY and NYPL.
