CUNY LIBRARIES ARE OPEN both ONLINE and on campus! We are open online for reference & instruction. E-resources are fully available. CUNY Libraries physical spaces are also open for quiet study, computers and wifi, materials pickup, and more. Please note that library plans are subject to change based on the evolving pandemic situation and plans at each campus. At this time, due to the pandemic, campus access (including libraries) may be restricted to each campus’ current students, faculty and staff. Some libraries require reservations. Please check our College Libraries page for details about the library you plan to visit.

Alma Implementation

Alma Steering Committee


  • Reporting to OLS and the CCL, this committee will provide a University-wide perspective that streamlines and informs the planning and implementation of the library services platform.
  • They will work closely with OLS and the working groups that will be formed to address specific policies, workflows, and recommendations in various areas.
  • The committee will be tasked with the following:
    • Ensure that the working groups are meeting deadlines and milestones.
    • Ensure that the expectations and deliverables of the working groups and the OLS are aligned.
    • Gather, collate, and prepare recommendations proposed by the working groups for review and approval by OLS and the CCL.
    • Advocate for those recommendations that support streamlined workflows, reduction of duplicative practices, support standard policies, and rationalize local customizations in order to take advantage of opportunities available through the LSP environment.
