2. Why NO Food or Drink in the Library?

Big image

The entire library collection is in a very (very!) small space. Crumbs and food refuse and wrappers in the rubbish bins can quickly and easily attract bugs and liquids including water can lead to mold. Both are very dangerous to our collection.

There is a big sign on the library door stating no food or drink are permitted. There are also signs throughout the reading room.

We do have a small exception to the rule:

  • Beverages? - Yes, you can bring coffee, tea, water, etc in the reading room - BUT - it MUST be in a completely sealed container. 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.
*NOTE: please conduct spill tests outside 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.

3. Study Late @ 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.

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 will need to pick up a letter from the Sotheby's Institute library for extended Bobst access beyond Oct 31. 2014.

More information on NYU Bobst Library access for Sotheby's Institute of Art - New York students.
