What If FIT Doesn't Have a Resource?

Sometimes you will be looking for a resource that is not held by FIT. Luckily, there are a number of avenues available for finding these sorts of materials. This page will walk you through how to find materials held by other institution, request materials via ILL, and make plans to visit other libraries and research collections in NYC.

Creating Interlibrary Loan and NYPL Accounts for More Access

Interlibrary Loan

Would you like to be able to request any circulating item from any library AND have it sent to campus and held just for you?
Of course you would!  Our Interlibrary Loan service lets you request materials from other libraries and it is seamlessly integrated into the OneSearch system - simply use the drop-down menu to search Other Libraries.

Using Other Libraries in NYC

One advantage of going to school in New York City is that we are surrounded by libraries and institutions that have access to information about art, artists, and the art market. If you can't find the resources you need at FIT, you may also want to consider visiting another local library. When planning your visit, keep in mind that some libraries are only open limited hours, some require appointments, and many may be able to provide research advice before you stop by. Checking out the library's website is always a good first step before visiting in person.

Below is just a partial list of libraries that you might want to check out:

  • Watson Library - The Met

  • Frick Collection Library

  • New-York Historical Society Library

  • Sotheby’s Institute of Art Library

  • Cooper-Hewitt Library

  • New York Academy of Art Library

  • MoMA Library

  • American Folk Art Museum Library & Archive

  • Frances Mulhall Achilles Library - The Whitney

  • The Morgan Library

  • Brooklyn Museum Library

  • Vine Deloria, Jr. Library - National Museum of the American Indian
