Service to scholars is the primary mission of the NYU Abu Dhabi Library. We provide resources and technologies needed for research and teaching and offer assistance in their use. Members of the NYU community have access to our extensive range of physical and electronic resources, including:

  • over 88,000 physical books
  • over 6,000 DVDs
  • over 250,000 e-journals
  • over 1,400 databases
  • nearly 3 million ebooks
  • a wide range of equipment and software to help with research and teaching

The NYUAD Library is fully connected to NYU Libraries e-resources in New York, providing seamless access for our global scholars. These electronic resources are accessible within the library and remotely. Additionally, if a resource cannot be found in the main collection, eligible borrowers may request it from NYU Bobst library or other libraries around the world.

Comfortable reading areas and small and large group study rooms create a productive atmosphere for research. The dedicated Reading Room on the Mezzanine level provides plenty of space for students to focus on their research in a relaxed environment. Research assistance is available via phone, email, chat, and in-person at our Research Help Desk. By appointment, librarians are available to meet individually with students and faculty to help them with their research needs.
