Question: How can I search the Archives & Special Collections?


Use the Archival Collections search site ( to explore descriptions, finding aids, and digitized content held by New York University’s special collections, as well as archival material held by the New-York Historical Society and Brooklyn Historical Society.

Use BobCat to search for books, journals and other print materials, videos, sound recordings, e-books, e-journals, databases, and indexes in local libraries and special collections.
