2. Why can't I bring coffee and snacks into the library?
Food and drinks are not permitted in the library (this includes the library reading room) at Sotheby's Institute of Art.
The entire library collection is in a very (very!) small space. Crumbs, food refuse and wrappers in the rubbish bins quickly and easily attract bugs and liquids including water can lead to mold. Both are very dangerous to our collection.
We do have a small exception to the rule:
- Beverages? - Yes, you can bring coffee, tea, water, etc in the library reading room - BUT - it MUST be in a completely sealed container. Your SIA Contigo Travel Mug is spill-proof!
- Take-away- and coffee machine-style cups with plastic snap on lids are not permitted in the library as they can leak and spill. If you turn it upside down or knock it off a table does any liquid come out? If your spill test results are completely dry then your beverage container is welcome in the library.
Food? - Please eat all food outside the library. The lounge area on the other side of the floor is only a few steps away and is now open and available the same hours as the library.
Please help us keep the library collection safe and the reading room clean and conducive to study and keep all food and unsealed beverages out of the library.

5. Study Late At NYU Bobst Library
NYU Bobst Library is one of the largest academic research libraries in the city and offers graduate level research collections in art and business.
Sotheby's Institute - New York MA and GC students have reader privileges at Bobst Library. What does this mean?
- Bobst is a great study space option for students, with plenty of seating and quiet-study areas. Study late! Bobst is open until 1am.
- You will have on-site terminal access to many NYU E-resources.
The first time visiting Bobst will require you to stop at the Library Privileges Desk to receive an access sticker on your SIA ID card. Third semester students who requested extended Bobst access beyond Oct 31. 2015 will need to pick a new sticker at Bobst as well.
