Getting Started: some basics

In order to use our paid subscription databases off campus, you must log in to and then click on the Libraries icon.

To search library catalogs throughout the area, use This will help you locate information that may not be available in the consortium. If you need something in one of the particpating area libraries come to any of our reference desks, or e-mail us with a request for a Metro-referral card.

The New School Libraries is part of a consortium of libraries. That means we've entered into an agreement with them to share certain resources, and to share also the library catalog (BobCat). You will notice, therefore, that when search the catalog, if you do not go to "advanced search" and indicate that you'd like only to search New School resources, you will be searching resources in a number of libraries. The circulating material in NYU's Bobst Library and the Cooper Union's Library are available to you to check out.

Location of New School and Consortium Libraries

The New School Libraries and Archives have a number of sites around campus, and the hours of each vary also. We're also part of consortium of libraries.
