We collect, preserve, and provide access to a wide range of primary research materials in their original formats, including books, manuscripts, sound recordings, film & video, archives, artworks and other items to support teaching and research.
NYU Special Collections — Fales Library, Tamiment Library & Robert F. Wagner Archives, and University Archives — is undergoing a major renovation over the next two years. For more information, please visit the Special Collections Renovation Project website.
All repositories will be closed to researchers during the following periods:
• May 22, 2019 - September 2, 2019
• May 21, 2020 - September 7, 2020
There may be an impact on services and collections during our opening times. We request all patrons make appointments to use materials.
The Special Collections will be unable to accommodate any outgoing loan requests during the period of renovation, fall 2018 through fall 2020.
