The flagship location of The New York Public Library, the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building is a premier research center renowned for its extraordinary historical collections and its commitment to providing free and equal access to its resources.

As of May 10, as part of the Library’s gradual reopening, the Schwarzman Building is partially open—by appointment only—for limited research services. Book a virtual consultation with a Library staff member to determine whether your research needs can be met remotely or if you need to make an onsite research appointment. If you need to visit the Schwarzman Building, our staff will confirm a time and make the onsite research appointment with you during your consultation. If you are unsure which division or research center you are looking for, contact Ask NYPL.
