Borrowing Materials from Bobst Library

Borrowing Privileges

While in New York, NYU Global patrons do have borrowing privileges at Bobst Library. However, please note that all books are subject to recall at any time, and it may be most convenient for you to return your books before going abroad. 

Recalled Books

Items which have been recalled from you must be returned by the due date specified in the recall notice, regardless of the original due date or the due date stamped in the back of the book. Recalled books which become overdue accrue fines at the rate of $1/day and block your record so that you cannot check out or renew any books until the recalled items are returned. Books that are already overdue will accrue charges retroactive to the original due date.

Book Returns

All books can be mailed to the address below for returns:

Bobst Library Circulation Department
70 Washington Square South
New York, NY 10012

For more information on borrowing policies, visit the Borrowing and Renewing page on the NYU Library website.
