Intra-Library (or intra-campus) Loans

Current students, staff, and faculty may request to borrow materials from any of NYIT New York/Long Island campus Libraries through Intra-Library Loan.

Use Bearcat, the NYIT Library Catalog to find the item you want. If the only copy of the item is located at another NYIT branch library, then fill out and submit the Intra-Library Loan request form. Your request will be processed in two business days. If available, the item will be sent to the requesting NYIT branch library, and you will receive an email when it arrives. If the request is not available, we will notify you as soon as possible.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Current students, staff, and faculty may request to borrow an item that is not in our collection through Interlibrary Loan. To avoid delays, always check the Library Catalog to see if we own the item prior to submitting ILL requests.

Places to Study

Libraries on both campuses offer study carrels, large tables, comfortable seating, Mediascape collaborative workstations, and group study rooms that can be reserved for 2 hours at a time.

Technology

The libraries offer a variety of hardware for your use on site, including: laptops, tablets, e-readers, desktop computers, printers, photocopiers, scanners, Mediascape collaborative workstations, and a Bloomberg terminal (Wisser). Consult individual library links to find specific resources available.

Printing & Photocopying

All NYIT libraries are equipped with copy machines and wireless printers you may access with your ID card (for copies) or your myNYIT username and password (for printing), free of charge up to a per semester allotment.

Recommend a Purchase

Students and faculty members may suggest titles they would like the library to purchase for use in a particular course or to support a project.
