As part of NYU Abu Dhabi’s mission to support the research and scholarship needs of the broader community, the NYUAD Library welcomes individuals with research needs to access its collections via the Community Access Program.
Members of the community are granted in-person access to the library to conduct research, study, and read using our collections, through an online application process, below. Community Access is granted on an annual basis.
To ensure the NYUAD Library contains the material most suitable to patrons’ work, applicants should include their area of research and, where possible, the specific resources they need. The available resources can be found by searching the library catalog.
NYUAD is committed to protecting the health and safety of our community while remaining focused on academic and research continuity and community building. As part of the university’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and safe return to campus, visitors must comply with the health and safety guidelines listed on the Requirements for Accessing Campus page, under Academic and Research Visitors.
Community members who need to conduct research using primary source materials are also encouraged to visit the university’s Archives and Special Collections, which is the University's repository for rare books and archival materials, specialized subject collections, manuscripts, photographs, and map collections.
Submit questions and requests directly to Archives and Special Collections at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Collection is open for in-person services by appointment only, and appointments should be made at least 48 business hours in advance.
