Manhattan Research Library Initiative (MaRLI) Application Form
Note that new and renewal applications submitted between August 15-31, 2017 will be processed after September 1. Applicants will hear back from email@example.com after that date.
In order to increase accessibility to our combined collections, the libraries of Columbia University, New York University and the New York Public Library are offering eligible users the opportunity to borrow select materials from each of the three partner libraries based on the following criteria:
- NYPL cardholder in good standing (please resolve any blocks or delinquencies on your library account before applying)
- Demonstration that resources available through the home institution have been exhausted
- Demonstration of a sustained need for access to the resources of the participating libraries and collections
- Requested materials are deemed appropriate for circulation
If you are unsure whether MaRLI is appropriate for your research needs, please visit or contact any of our research libraries to discuss the program.
Interlibrary Loan or a METRO referral may serve your needs if you only require access to one item for a limited period of time, or if you require access to materials not held by NYPL, NYU, or Columbia.
