NYU Global Library Services

An overview of library services for students, staff, and faculty studying & working abroad.

NYU Libraries' Global Reserve Services

NYU Libraries provides support for faculty teaching at the Global Academic Centers, including:

  • Creating links to NYU Libraries licensed articles and ebooks for your NYU Classes page through Course Reserves.

  • Scanning limited portions of NYU Libraries' material, within Fair Use Guidelines

Inquiries about placing your reserve requests should be forwarded through the Contact Course Reserves form. Please indicate the global site from which you are making your request.

The turnaround time for linking and scanning services is roughly 3-5 business days. Links and scans provided by NYU Libraries will be posted on your NYU Classes page.

  • Help identify online books and journals and recommend databases relevant to your syllabus.
