Welcome Message from Library Director

Dear Students,

Welcome back!

This summer, we made several changes in the library to make it a better space for your study and research needs.

SAVE MY SPOT WIDGET

We can never have enough seats in the library for everyone, but we have made finding a seat in the library easier. Save My Spot can help you

  • keep your seat for 30 mins without having to remove all personal belongings when you go on a short break

  • identify available seats held by unattended belongings and give you the right to take the seat.

Check out the video or ask at the library desk on how to use this sleek tool in NYU Shanghai Wechat.

SELF CHECK-OUT MACHINE

Get help or do-it-yourself, it’s your choice!The library’s new self check-out machine will help you reduce wait time during rush hours at the circulation desk.

NEW SLIDING DOOR

The library installed a new sliding door to block out noise from other floors. Please also note that swipe access has now been enabled to entering and exiting Academic Commons after service hours.

NEW COMPUTERS

  • 8 new high-end virtual PCs with 27″ 4K monitors in Academic Commons

  • Run everything from Adobe Premier to MatLab, Mathematica and more

  • Comes with excellent processing and graphics capability running Nvidia Grid graphics directly from our data center
