A guide to services and resources especially for Graduate Students at NYU Libraries

Spring Research Breakfast

Join us for a final stretch research breakfast

We're getting ready for the final stretch of the semester and wanted to invite you to join us for a special event. Come have breakfast, talk with our librarians about your project, learn about specialized services and resources the library has to offer, and take care of those lingering research to-do list items. We'll have specialists from across the disciplines who can help get you (re)oriented to our resources, get you started with citation management processes,  and help you get the most out of our collections and services.

This informal event lasts for two hours, and you can come and go as you like during that time.

RSVP: Tuesday, March 28, 10:00am-12:00 noon

Bobst Library, 10th floor Graduate Student Exchange

MaRLI - Get materials at Columbia and NYPL!

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.
