Access the the ISAW Library

For the Fall 2021 term physical access to the onsite (i.e., non-circulating) collection of the ISAW Library and all Library spaces will be limited to members of the ISAW and NYU communities have access to the ISAW building at 15 East 84th Street. 

Unfortunately, we are unable to welcome students and scholars from other academic institutions and independent scholars to the ISAW Library at this time. If you have a question about the ISAW Library or intend to visit us in the future, when our spaces and collections will again be opened up to the wider ancient studies community, please write to us at ISAW-Library@nyu.edu.

If you are a member of the NYU community and have questions about your building access status, please see the following policy:
