The library workers of the Bern Dibner Library of Science and Technology seek to educate and support our NYU Brooklyn and Tandon community as they research within and transform their information ecosystems. We accomplish this by contributing our expertise to building collections, teaching information literacy, creating welcoming spaces, and facilitating knowledge creation.


We create welcoming and functional spaces for all of those who visit.
