This guide will help you better navigate through all of the resources that we have to offer!

Alumni Resources

All alumni now have free access to the following databases:

  • Access World News  (full-text info from over 600 regional/state/national and over 700 international sources)
  • ReferenceUSA (find business and residential information and contacts)
  • Statista (searchable database of statistics, studies, dossiers, infographics and more, from over 100,000 vetted sources)

Alumni will access via their barcodes (listed on their J-School ID cards - email if you need to know the barcode on file for you) 


We are also able to offer 100 discounted AP Stylebook subscriptions. For access, please sign up here:

Alumni must be in good standing with the Research Center, and other CUNY libraries. All CUNY library fines must be paid, and your account must be cleared in order to receive alumni privileges. If you are unsure of your status, please email for assistance. 

Alumni can visit the Research Center to access our databases and borrow materials - but you are not able to do so from other CUNY libraries. For more information on visiting campus, please refer here:
