A Special Collections Account is designed for researchers using special collections at The New York Public Library. Account holders can:
The account is web-based and can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. It is distinct from the account used to log into the NYPL catalogs, and so will have its own username and password.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Registration is free and easy.
After reading and accepting selected NYPL policies, you will be prompted to fill out a profile and create a username and password.
Once the form is complete and submitted, you will be directed to the homepage of your Special Collections Account. You can update your personal information and change your password anytime via the My Profile menu in the account.
