Welcome to the NYU Special Collections renovation website. Over the next two years, NYU will be carrying out a major renovation of the 2nd and 3rd floors of Bobst Library to create a unified home for its three special collections – Fales Library, Tamiment Library and Robert F. Wagner Archives, and University Archives. Construction work will begin toward the end of May 2018, and will first affect the 2nd floor of Bobst Library. Both the Fales Library and the Tamiment Library/University Archives reading rooms will remain open until further notice. Stay tuned for more detailed information, coming soon.
