Access Services & Borrowing Privileges: Public Access

Publicly Accessible Areas of the Libraries

The Fordham University Libraries are a private library system dedicated to providing research support, resources and study space to the Fordham University community. Our collection and resources are not publicly available, though the public may access the Libraries' collection of U.S. Government Documents, as well as the Fordham Museum of Greek, Etruscan and Roman Art as detailed below.

Please note: As of March 10, 2020, public access to the Fordham Museum of Greek, Etruscan and Roman Art, and the U.S. Government Documents is suspended. Since the University is transitioning to online models of instruction for the remainder of the semester, the Libraries will have limited (if any) access for the University community only. Thank you for your understanding and consideration.
