The New York Public Library offers a number of resources to patrons wishing to access materials who are unable to visit physical library locations. This is intended to be a comprehensive guide of resources related to dance, which includes NYPL's Digital Collections, databases, and e-books.
During our closure in 2020 in response to COVID-19, the Library is attempting to increase levels of access to our databases, as well as increase the number of e-books available. We are working hard to make sure patrons are able to meet their needs to the best of our ability. We will keep this guide current with any updates in the coming weeks.
During our period of closure, New York state residents are welcome to apply for a library card through the SimplyE app—and gain access to an array of digital resources, including e-books, audiobooks, databases, and more. When we reopen, new applicants can visit their local library to obtain and validate their physical library card.
While our locations are closed staff are still working and accessible. For any dance related questions please visit our Division webpage or email firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will help in any way we can. We are also now offering virtual consultations to help with your research. Just visit https://libcal.nypl.org/appointments/lpa to set up an appointment.
