    Archives, Rare Books and Databases for Scholarly Research
    An Orientation to Resources at the New York Public Library

    The New York Public Library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building at 42nd St.
    and 5th Ave. is an historical research library to which Graduate Center scholars
    have full and complete access. Rare books, monographs, and specialized periodicals in the library’s collection support research in both American and European history, anthropology, political science, and other research interests in the humanities, fine arts, and social sciences. Databases available on-site can assist projects by offering digital copies of hard-to-find newspapers and rare, printed ephemera. Archives dating from the 18th through the 20th centuries support research in the political, economic, social, and cultural history of New York and the United States.

    This fall NYPL will offer two one-hour instructional course aimed at graduate research focusing on fulltext databases not otherwise available at the CUNY Graduate Center, as well as helping researchers to locate items across the Library’s special collections, begin more specific research in rare books and archives, and navigate the NYPL’s research centers.

    The October 23rd workshop will focus on historical research, and the November 20th workshop will focus on art research. Both workshops will take place in the South Court Classrooms on the first floor of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building on Fifth Ave. & 42nd St.
