METRO Title Referrals

The New York Metropolitan Reference and Research Library Agency (METRO) offers a referral service to many area libraries. Individuals may be referred by participating METRO libraries to other METRO libraries if a particular item is not available in either the "home" library or the public library systems. Upon verification of a title's availability, a librarian at a METRO library may issue a yellow METRO Title Referral card, or pass which will allow an individual a one-time-only visit to a library to use the specified item in that library.

The Title Referral is not intended for general use of a library's collections or services. Photo ID must be presented at the Library Privileges service window to obtain an access pass.

METRO passes can be issued for offsite materials. The refering librarian should contact our Library Privileges Service Window (212-998-2607), to request offsite materials. Requested items will be available behind the circulation desk within 2 business days. Up to 12 title referrals will be accepted from each individual per semester.

NYU library users that need access to items not available at Bobst may request a METRO referral card at Bobst Library's 1st Floor Reference Center.
