Book a Virtual Research Consultation

With expansive historical collections, expert librarians, and a variety of fellowships and learning opportunities, The New York Public Library is an invaluable resource for writers, scholars, students, and creators worldwide.

As of Monday, November 16, 2020, the Library is suspending onsite research appointments to help its efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19. You can now schedule a one-on-one virtual consultation with our knowledgeable staff to assess how your research needs may be met remotely using Scan & Deliver or our other remote research services.

If you are unsure which research center or division to contact, please get in touch with Ask NYPL.
