Library Resources for ITP

This guide was created for researchers in the Interactive Telecommunications Program.

Research strategies

  • Use Google/Wikipedia to identify synonyms and related terms of interest
  • Start simple (1-2 words!), and think critically about the results you're getting
  • Irrelevant results? Try synonyms, or try searching somewhere else
  • Write down new terms you come across (and try searching them, too)
  • Search in many different places (e.g,. library catalogs, Google Books, multidisciplinary databases, subject-specific databases...)
  • Look at reference lists and "citing references" 
  • Ask for help!


If Bobst Library, Dibner Library, or an NYU Consortium Library (New School, Cooper Union, IFA, etc.) does not own a book that you need, you can request it from EZBorrow or Interlibrary Loan.

Non-books (Articles, proceedings, etc.)

General databases

Subject-specific databases

Worth a shot!
