NYU Libraries Catalog, known as BobCat (Bobst Catalog), can help you find books and ebooks, journals, encyclopedias, videos, and government documents. Enter a topic, a title, an author, or a publisher to search. (To search for journal articles, use the "Search by citation tool" on the Library website.)
Please note: most ebooks should be findable in Bobcat, but we do have a guide for finding more ebook databases that you can search if you rely on specific publishers. Proquest's Ebook Central is our biggest ebook database, but we also have various university press databases and a variety of other publishers like Bloomsbury, Brill, Taylor & Francis, and Sage. Not all books put out by these publishers are available in ebook format.
Select a research database to search for scholarly journal articles. Please see the Video Resources page for streaming education videos and the Curriculum Materials page for children's literature databases.
You will be asked for your NYU NetID and password (same as NYU Home) to access the research databases on this list from off campus.
