ABOUT

The CUNY School of Public Health Library is an all-digital library – providing access to electronic resources through a partnership with the City College of New York.

As a rule of thumb, you should always begin your research from this page.

FOUR THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW

I. The Public Health LibGuide is a comprehensive reference guide that includes information on the login process, conducting research, evidence-based resources and grey literature, access to data, OER and Open Access resources, citation and formatting, Interlibrary Loan and CLICS, Course Reserves, deposit procedures for dissertations and theses, and other library resources.

II. OneSearch is a discovery tool that gives you access to online journals, books and digital collections – in a nutshell, it searches everything. There are two logins when using OneSearch: one is with your barcode, which is on the back of your SPH ID and begins with the numbers 27674. Your barcode will also serve as your password.

The second login is when you click on “Full text available” to view an article in OneSearch or when you click on a core database below. Your username is your first initial, last name, last two CUNY EMPLID numbers (i.e. JDoe01). The password is your SPH WiFi and desktop password, which is emailed to all students upon matriculation.

If you do not know your WiFi password, you can check your SPH email or contact the SPH Helpdesk (Helpdesk@sph.cuny.edu) to reset your password.
