New York Public Library
NYPL includes libraries in Manhattan, the Bronx, and Staten Island. Queens Public Library and Brooklyn Public Library are separate, but affiliated, systems, and have separate catalogs.
This guide and your information resources instruction session are intended to provide you with tools and techniques to aid in your research. During the session, I will cover the following areas:
- Formulating a search strategy
- Selecting appropriate resources to search
- Techniques for searching the online catalog and other databases
- Reading a bibliography and citation
- Finding material once you have a citation
At the end of this session you should have a better understanding of how to do your research. If you encounter any difficulty along the way, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me or one of my colleagues.
The Cooper Union Library is a member of the Research Library Association of South Manhattan, a consortium of academic libraries established in 1977. Consortium libraries share an online catalog and provide faculty and students of member institutions with access to each other's collections.
Cooper Union faculty and students may borrow at the Consortium libraries. Make sure that you have your library account activated and updated at our Circulation Desk prior to going to the other libraries.
