NYU students and faculty may check out books at Cooper Union library, the library of the New York School of Interior Design, and the three libraries of New School University (Fogelman, their main library; Gimbel, the library of Parson's School of Design; and Scherman, the library of Mannes College of Music). Since policies vary, it's best to ask the individual library what the terms of circulation are. For more information, visit Consortium and Affiliated Libraries.
What are oversized books, and where are they?
Oversized books are too large to fit on the regular stacks shelves, so there are special sections on each floor for them. Check the maps on each floor to find these materials.
A METRO referral card allows an individual a one-time-only visit to another library to use specific item. NYU library users needing access to items not available at Bobst may request a METRO referral card at Bobst Library 1st Floor Reference Center.
