Welcome to the Institute of Fine Arts Library!
The library consists of two non-circulating research collections, the Stephen Chan Library of Fine Arts and the Conservation Center Library. Its holdings reflect the research and curricular needs of the Institute of Fine Arts, with books focusing on subjects in art history, archaeology, and conservation.
Both libraries maintain a rare book collection, and the Conservation Center Library maintains a video collection containing a variety of films on treatment, preventive care, and research directed toward the long-term safekeeping of materials.
As of March 14, NYU Libraries services are all online. Library spaces are closed until further notice.
