CLICS Intra-Campus Service

How to Request Books Online

CLICS (CUNY Library Intra-Campus Services) allows students and faculty to request books and have them sent to any campus.

Most requests (for books not already checked out by another patron) are delivered in about a week. Some requests take 5 days or fewer; some take more than a week. NYC traffic, CUNY library systems problems, and library staffing all affect delivery time.

You may return books to any CUNY library as long as they are not overdue. The CUNY Law School does not participate in the program.

  • Step 1:
    Once you find the book you want, click on the “Request” button on the middle of the screen.
  • Step 2:
    Enter your library barcode number and password. (Your library barcode is on the the back of your BMCC ID and starts with 214.)
  • Step 3:
    Make sure Borough of Manhattan CC is selected.
  • Step 4:
    The book will be delivered to BMCC.  You will receive an email when it has arrived on campus.  You will pick it up at the circulation desk in the library (S410).
