Center for Research in the Humanities interior

The Center for Research in the Humanities, located on the second floor of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building, is dedicated to furthering the Library’s mission to engage, inspire, support, and connect a growing community of scholars worldwide, with each other and with the Library’s world-class collections. In addition to our four study rooms, the Center is home to the Lenox and Astor Room, a programming space for in person and virtual research events that highlight the Library's collections and the research they have fueled.

The Center’s four shared study rooms are reserved for qualified researchers and writers whose work will benefit from the consultation and intensive use of research collections related to the humanities and social sciences. The New York Public Library also offers competitive fellowship programs. Please apply for access to the research study rooms using the online form. For further information, contact
