Service Update August 23, 2021:
NYU Special Collections is open for limited, appointment-based on-site services for current NYU faculty, staff, and students.
Please email email@example.com in advance regarding your research questions.
A Special Collections Research Account (SCRA) is required to make an appointment. Staff will send information about the on-site service process after an appointment request has been made.
During visits, all individuals must abide by health and safety protocols as per University guidelines.
For Non-NYU researchers: Special Collections will be offering limited remote services, including reproductions of materials, remote reference and research help.
Due to our current staffing schedule we will be unable to accommodate any outgoing loans of collection materials at the present time.
Special Collections are also undergoing a major renovation, and there may be future impacts on services and collections during our opening times.
NYU Libraries’ special collections and archives house significant resources, rare books, personal papers, University history, and more. Additionally, they sponsor numerous events throughout the year and contribute widely to many publications.
