Welcome! NYU and the Business Library 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. - Dan Hickey, Head, NYU Business Library
To view alumni resources for other disciplines, visit the Alumni E-Library portal in NYU Home.
Q: Can I purchase access to the greater Business Library (not just the alumni subscriptions)?
A: Contractually we cannot resell access to our resources. You would need to work directly with the vendor to pursue a personal subscription. Thank you for your understanding.
Q: I would like to visit Bobst Library. What are my options?
A: Alumni access is temporarily suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Upon presentation of an NYU Alumni card and a valid government 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 at a reduced rate.
Q: What is the "Friends of Bobst Library" program?
A: Friends of Bobst Library is a philanthropic giving program - open to all - that supports the non-profit educational mission of NYU Libraries. Memberships are 100% tax-deductible gifts. However, Friends donations do not directly benefit the Business Library.
Q: I would like to make a gift to support the Business Library and/or alumni resources. Who should I contact?
A: Thank you! Please contact Dan Hickey, Head of the Business Library. Your generosity helps us best meet the needs of NYU students and scholars.
