Need a resource from the IFA, ISAW, Jack Brause, or NYU Poly library and don't have the time to go there? Not to worry, the Bobst Library Delivery Services can have material delivered between these libraries for your convenience. Users may also request journal article and book chapter scans from the Bobst or Courant Library. Visit the Delivery Services page for estimated delivery times, instructions on making a request, and fair use guidelines.
The New York Public Library and the libraries of Columbia University and New York University have launched a pilot initiative to expand access and use of collections and better serve their users. The collaboration, dubbed the Manhattan Research Library Initiative (MaRLI), will enable NYU and Columbia doctoral students, full-time faculty and librarians, and approved New York Public Library cardholders with a demonstrable research need not met by currently available resources, to borrow materials from all three institutions.
There is a registration process, so please visit the MaRLI guide below to learn more about the program and eligibility.
