The New York University Archives serves as the final repository for the historical records of NYU. Its primary purpose is to document the history of the University and to provide source material for administrators, faculty, students, alumni, and other members of the University community, as well as scholars, authors, and other interested persons who seek to evaluate the impact of the University’s activities on the history of American social, cultural, and intellectual development.
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.
