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.

Best Practices in Accessibility for Purchasing and Marketing E-Resources: CUNY Resources



  • The CUNY Assistive Technology (CATS) has been an ongoing project that has lead to the testing and support of assistive technology equipment as a resource for CUNY professionals.



  • CUNY's Office of Computer and Information Services has issued an accessibility statement. In January 2015, CUNY's IT Accessibility Task Force, formed by chancellor's office, surveyed the accessibility of library services and materials offered by CUNY libraries.


  • CUNY's Procedures for Implementing Reasonable Accommodation. There is also a faculty guide for reasonable accommodations in the classroom. Faculty members should also visit CUNY's IT page dedicated to faculty with disabilities, how to make CUNY applications accessible, and how faculty can apply accessibility to teaching activities.  


  • CUNY's Policy for Equal Opportunity and Non-Discrimination.


**Office of Library Services, Library Marketing and Outreach (LMO) Committee** has been established by the University Dean of Libraries to assist CUNY librarians with promoting  e-resources purchased by CUNY and/or owned individually by the university libraries. It is not focused on creating overall marketing plans for libraries and their services at this time. View the LMO committee workshop on how to make  LibGuides accessible, by Adina Mulliken.
