Due to system maintenance, several library systems will be unavailable starting at 7:30 PM (local time in Shanghai, China) on July 10. The affected systems include the library catalog (BobCat), book requests, e-journals, databases, Interlibrary loan and ebooks. The Libraries’ Status Page (https://nyulibraries.statuspage.io/) will have the most up-to-date information about the system status during the outage.
We expect systems will be down until approximately 5 AM (in Shanghai, China) on July 11. We apologize for any inconvenience. As always, please contact Ask a Librarian if you have any questions or concerns.
“I wish there was a place I could prepare the exams with my study buddies.”
If this thought has run through your head before, then act fast and book your very own library study room.
The study rooms can host four to eight people, and it offers a whiteboard for brainstorming and discussion.
To book a room, please click here. Or scan the QR code on the door/in the group study room.
Remember these rooms can only be booked up to 2 hours so make sure to keep track of time and be respectful of others who may have booked the same room for the next hours.
Plan ahead. You can book up to 7 days in advance.
Big thanks to 212 parents who donated the 启航研习室(405) in the library.
Finally, after you are done with the study room, please remember to clean up the messes you made so others are able to enjoy the same space.
Do you have loans?
Do you need to request a book from interlibrary loan, but do not know how to do it?
Do you need to pay fines?
If your answer is yes to at least one of these questions, then you should access your own library account.
How can I access my library account?
There are two ways:
1. From Library’s official WeChat account
Find—My Account—Login to your account and check the records.
2. Through NYU Shanghai homepage
Library—My Accounts—Library Account—Log in to your account and check the records.
Now, you are able to view things such as:
- Holds Requests
- Booking Requests
Is your deadline for a book fast approaching? Are you feeling scared and anxious about the fines and fees? Do not fear because you can also renew your loans straight from home by clicking the loans tab on your library account.
If you are unable to find a book in NYU Shanghai’s library please feel free to request a book from “My interlibrary loan (ILL),” which is a tab located on the far left of your library account. The interlibrary loans allow you to request many different sources such as:
- Book Chapters
- Musical score
Because the interlibrary loan takes much longer for you to obtain the physical copy of the book, there is also the option to requests scanned sections of the book, and you can view your requests in processing.
If you have any other question, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org
