ISAW's historic townhouse has its own seminar rooms, lecture hall, common room, work spaces, and library.

ISAW students have access to the main NYU libraries including Bobst Library, located on Washington Square and containing the principal humanities and history book collection of the University, and the Institute of Fine Arts (IFA), a short walk from ISAW, which contains 100,000 volumes focused on art history and archaeology.

Physical and electronic document delivery services now link Bobst, IFA, and ISAW. In addition, the rich library of the Metropolitan Museum of Art is located just two blocks away from ISAW.

For more on the ISAW Library, see the Library page.
