Q: What happens if I sign into my account on the library website?

A: You don't have to sign into your account, but if you do, you can:

  • read online articles and e-books when you are off-campus;
  • request that books at other CUNY colleges be sent to Hostos Library for you to pick up;
  • "pin" books, articles, and other items that you want to remember and find again easily;
  • "pin" searches and get email notifications when new items that fit that search;
  • request a checked-out book from Hostos Library (the person who borrowed it won't be able to extend their loan); and
  • see when my books and other items are due back at the library, and extend the time (unless someone else has requested the item).
