On-Site Research: As of May 10, 2021, researchers can schedule an appointment to visit any of the New York Public Library’s four Research Libraries – the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, Performing Arts, Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, or the Business Center at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library (formerly the Science and Business Library, or SIBL). Before doing so, you’ll need to meet virtually with an NYPL librarian, in advance of your visit – so be sure to plan ahead, and schedule enough time in advance for your research needs.
