New York University Libraries is a global organization that advances learning, research, and scholarly inquiry in an environment dedicated to the open exchange of information by:
- Building, preserving, interpreting, and providing access to rich and diverse collections;
- Teaching the effective use and critical evaluation of information resources;
- Developing creative and responsive services for diverse user communities
While our primary responsibility lies with the students and faculty of New York University, the Libraries welcome and engage in scholarly, cultural, and artistic interactions with broader communities.
