New York Libraries and Free Resources

There’s a surprising amount of free resources out there for you to take advantage of. We’ll start to feature some of these resources here on the Research Center’s blog. We’ll start with the New York Public Library and New York State Library.

Starting with the New York Public Library (NYPL) you can find articles, facts, statistics, news, images, and more by accessing this link:

All you need to access most of these databases is a NYPL library card, here’s the information on how to sign up for a library card:
