How Do I Find a Book?
To see if the Library has the book you need, check the online catalog.
Keep the following in mind when searching the catalog:
Many items held in the Special Collections will not be listed in the Library's catalogs. These include books and other materials, such as broadsheets, manuscripts, musical scores, prints, photographs and more. For help finding these materials, please consult the home page for the appropriate division, consult the online finding aids, or consult a reference librarian for assistance.
If you are looking for a book to check out and take with you, you can also search the catalog to find materials contained throughout the 87 NYPL Branch Libraries in the Bronx, Manhattan, and Staten Island.
