Jack Brause Library for Real Estate

NYU's Jack Brause Library is one of the preeminent real estate libraries in North America.

Library History

The Jack Brause Library supports all students and faculty associated with NYU programs based at the NYU Midtown Center.  In addition to the collection, the Library offers study space, a collaborative work area, computer access and research assistance. 

The Brause Library was established in 1983 as a small collection to support New York University's Real Estate Institute.  Since then, it has evolved into an impressive resource of national repute.  When the NYU School of Professional Studies introduced the Masters of Science in Real Estate Development and Investment in 1988, the Library grew as well.  Additions included expanded reference materials and an increase in print subscriptions.  While primarily supporting the NYU SPS Master's programs, the Library also remains open to New York-area real estate professionals (see Access Policy for additional information).  The Library contains material on all aspects of the real estate industry, from finance and investment to development, management, and economics.  Resources include industry forecasts, property ownership, zoning laws and maps, mortgage banking, retail leasing trends, real estate investment trusts, and real estate as a profession.

As SPS has expanded its graduate program offerings into a wide range of business areas, the Brause Library has focused its efforts on serving all NYU SPS programs based at the Midtown Center.  While our resources are increasingly offered in electronic formats, we continue to maintain and expand a collection of the print materials most crucial for supporting our Midtown students and faculty.
