To obtain material that is not in the NYU Libraries collections, eligible users may place an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request. If the item needed is a book, NYU users may place an E-ZBorrow request instead of ILL, for expedited service.
Some users may also have direct access to materials at other libraries.
First, check the WorldCat catalog to see if another local library has the item you need. You will also want to verify that the item is available in that library before you make a trip there.
- NYU students and faculty have on-site access at SHARES consortium member institution libraries (e.g. Rutgers, Princeton, Columbia)
- If an item is owned by a Metropolitan Library Council (METRO) member institution, NYU students and faculty may obtain a METRO referral from the 1st floor Reference Desk at Bobst Library. This will grant the user permission to enter the member institution's library and use the specified material.
- Full-time NYU Faculty and doctoral candidates may request borrowing privileges from Columbia and NYPL. Please see the MaRLI program for further information.
