Quick Search Request

You may request a Quick Search for Bobst Library materials listed as "available" in Bobcat but you were unable to locate on the shelf.

Once we receive your request, we will search for the item and let you know if it's found within 24 hours. If the item is not found, we'll suggest other options for accessing it. Please note, you will be contacted via your NYU email if the item is found.

Before requesting a Quick Search here are a few searching tips that may help you locate the item immediately:

  • Confirm in Bobcat that the item is listed as available.
  • Confirm you are seaching in the correct location such as "oversized" or "reference"
  • You can search any of the sorting areas located throughout the building (on each floor as well as at the circulation desk)
  • Speak to Library staff for other suggestions
