The New York State Library
The New York State Library (NYSL) is a great resource, especially for items that the UAlbany Libraries do not own or provide. You should always check our holding in the Minerva catalog, before trying the New York State Library. The New York State Library is a research library located on Madison Avenue in Albany; it is in the Cultural Education Center across from the Empire State Plaza. New York residents (18-years-old and older) and State government employees may borrow materials and access online resources (journals and databases). Library users (in person and online) need a NYSL borrower's card. NY residents can apply for a borrower's card here; State employees can apply here. To see if NYSL has what you are looking for, check their catalog or their electronic resources listings.
