NYU and the Virtual Business Library (VBL) team believe in supporting the lifelong learning of our alumni, and are pleased to offer a selection of subscription resources for personal enrichment and career advancement. Access to these databases is provided free of charge for use anywhere in the world. An active alumni NetID is all that's required to log in.
To view additional subscriptions across all disciplines, visit the Alumni E-Library portal in NYU Home.
Q: I would like to make a gift to support the Virtual Business Library and/or alumni resources. Who should I contact?
A: Please contact both Susan Rider and Alicia Estes, NYU Libraries' development officer and Head of the Business Library respectively. (Also, thank you!)
Q: Can I purchase access to the greater Virtual Business Library (not just the alumni subscriptions)?
A: Contractually we cannot resell access to our resources. Thank you for your understanding.
Q: I would like to visit Bobst Library. What are my options?
A: Upon presentation of an NYU Alumni card and a photo ID, an individual will be allowed access for one visit to Bobst Library per year. Please plan ahead and contact our Library Privileges department beforehand with any questions to ensure a successful visit. For more than one visit, alumni may join the Friends of Bobst Library program at a reduced rate.
