CityU will reimburse the purchase of a community card from one of the libraries listed below. Community cards allow cardholders to check out books at the library from which their card was obtained. Students should request a receipt for the purchase of the community card and submit it to their advisor for reimbursement. Reimbursement takes the form of a credit posted to the student's account.
If, as a result of COVID, your local institution is not providing materials to community card holders, we at CityU Library will do our best to provide the resources you need.
Students may also want to use the collections and interlibrary loan services that are available at their local public libraries.
