The NYU Libraries is here for you. If you’re rethinking your teaching for a remote world, or simply looking to add more engaging resources to your syllabus, the Libraries can help. We’re taking innovative approaches to make our collections, services, and assistance available online so you can use them when and where you need. The sooner you start your process, the more options we’ll have to help you get the materials and support you need for your class.
COLLECTIONS BUILT FOR THESE TIMES
The NYU Libraries is actively building collections to support your remote teaching.
Whenever possible, we are making ebooks available to multiple simultaneous users, making them excellent for online course reserves tool available in NYU Classes.
On top of our wide-range of licensed materials, we also encourage and support your use of openly licensed and openly accessible materials that can be used, reused, remixed, and redistributed without limitations. We’re happy to help in finding and adopting Open Educational Resources for all your instruction needs.
Not finding something you need for your class? Place a Course Reserves request and we will try to license it, or ask your Liaison Librarian to recommend options that might be more accessible. To comply with safety guidelines regarding physical materials, course reserves will only be online-accessible in the fall.
PARTNERS IN YOUR TEACHING

Sessions can be a full 75-minute session or a shorter presentation during a portion of your class.
