Library and Writing Resources Available While Studying Away

As you prepare to study away next semester, please know that there are a variety of library and writing resources available throughout the Global Network to ensure your continued academic success.

NYUAD Library
The NYUAD library is located on the third floor of the Campus Center (C2) building. The library has rich print and e-resources. Students are able to acquire books from the NYU New York collection through an online request­ system. The Digital Studio, located in the NYUAD Library, offers a collection of information technology services to students working on a wide range of projects. Students can visit the Digital Studio to use digital media equipment, receive assistance, and gain access to various supported technologies. Students can also check out a range of electronic equipment through the Service Desk within the Digital Studio.

NYUAD Writing Center
Located in the Library, the Writing Center is the place writers go for one-on-one consultations with NYUAD’s team of Writing Instructors.  Writing consultants are experienced readers and writers who work with students in dedicated writing conferences, helping to develop strategies for revision of assignments or papers, teaching specific writing skills, or facilitating a deeper understanding about the student’s own writing process. Students from any field or discipline are welcomed. Visit  the Writing Center or make an appointment online here.

Online Resources
Students and faculty at NYU Global sites have access to an extensive range of online full-text collections including books, journals, audio, video and images, and a variety of library services including email reference through NYU Libraries’ website.  Become acquainted with the library services here.

Additionally, NYU’s Expository Writing Program in the College of Arts and Sciences has launched two new writing services that students can take advantage of:

  • Online Tutoring for Global Sites.  The NYU Writing Center now offers a space where any student in NYU’s Global Network can get help with his or her writing.  Via Google’s video chat and document sharing functions, consultants and students work one-on-one, focusing on every stage of the writing process and on any piece of writing (with the exception of exams).  Upon arrival, interested students can sign up online for remote tutoring time slots.  The sign-up link will be shared by Academic staff in Florence.
  • Resources for Writing is a series of Writing Guides that focus on the most essential and often challenging rhetorical moves in academic prose. Designed as mini-lessons, they take students through a step-by-step process that offers examples, explanations, and practice.  These sources are now available here.
