The NYU Libraries regularly acquires new databases. Take a look at the new database we added to our collection in September 2018:
Films on Demand: In an increasingly flat world, an understanding of the histories, politics, cultures, and economies of different countries and regions of the globe is becoming essential to more professions than ever before. This large collection contains critically acclaimed documentaries and feature programming on some of the world’s fastest-growing countries, such as China, India, Russia, and Brazil, as well as major regions including Africa, the Middle East, Latin America, and more.
Geriatrics Care Online provides information created to ensure that all health care professionals have the latest research on caring for older adults.
American Founding Era: Rotunda’s Founding Era Collection is an integrated research environment that covers the correspondence of a number of key figures from America’s founding era.
To mark the closing of The Unflinching Eye, NYU’s Nicholas Martin welcomes Whitney curator David Kiehl, PPOW Co-founder Wendy Olsoff, and NYU Contributing Curator Hugh Ryan for a reflection on these disparate exhibitions, how they complement and contrast with one another, and how the events of this summer reflect and build upon Wojnarowicz’s legacy here in New York and the world over.
Panel discussion 6:30-8:00. Reception to follow. R.S.V.P

The NYU Libraries regularly acquires new databases. Take a look at the new database we added to our collection in August 2018:
CNBKSY Database is a database of both English- and Chinese language newspapers of the 19th and early 20th centuries from the collections of The Shanghai Library. The Database includes: North-China Daily News, Herald Newspapers and Hong Lists.
Environmental Issues Online brings together multimedia materials (text, archival primary sources, video and audio) around key environmental challenges, including climate change, water/air pollution, biodiversity, conservation, agriculture, deforestation and more.
On August 7th, New York University Libraries proudly announced that Arcadia, a charitable fund of Lisbet Rausing and Peter Baldwin, approved a grant of $1.34 million to support Arabic Collections Online (ACO), a major project to create an open-access, digital library of public-domain Arabic language content.
Since 2013, ACO has been a partnership between New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) and NYU New York. Currently, ACO provides digital access to 8,785 volumes across 5,630 subjects drawn from Arabic collections of distinguished research libraries.
With the support of NYU Abu Dhabi, ACO plans to digitize 23,000 volumes from NYU and partner institutions by the end of 2020. These digitized resources will come from Arabic language books from the National Archives of the United Arab Emirates and six leading academic libraries: NYU, Columbia University, Cornell University, Princeton University, American University of Beirut (AUB), and American University in Cairo (AUC).
The books—all in the public domain—range in date from very early materials to imprints as late as the 1990s. Many of the older books are rare or fragile, and nearly all are out of print. ACO ensures that their content is saved digitally for future generations.
The NYU Libraries regularly acquires new databases. Take a look at the new database we added to our collection in July 2018:

It also includes practical instruction on screenwriting, TV, animation and filmmaking technique.
