We are working closely with our colleagues and will continue to share resources across institutions. If you have any questions, please contact us.
The Cooper Union Library works closely with our colleagues in the neighborhood branches of the New York Public Library, especially the Ottendorfer Branch Library and the Tompkins Square Branch Library. During the current COVID-19 health emergency, only the Tompkins Branch is open, but you can check here for periodic updates or to find a branch near you.
Regardless of your residency, all Cooper Union students, faculty and staff are eligible for an NYPL library card, which not only gives you access to their extensive print collections, but also enables you to access a wide array of remote resources.
Sign up for an NYPL card today and let us know if you have any questions.
