The Klau Library in New York
The Klau Library on the New York campus collects preserves and provides access to a carefully selected variety of library materials. Among its specific strengths are Hebrew language and literature, Jewish history, music, and religious thought. The Library supports the educational program of the School of Education, as it does each of the school’s programs, and also supports the specific research needs of their faculties. It also meets the Judaic research, cultural and information needs of the students and faculty of New York University; scholars in the New York area and, by means of interlibrary loan, outside of New York; the national staffs of the URJ, the CCAR, NATE, and the New York Area community. With its microfilm resources and facilities, the Library also functions as a branch in New York of both the American Jewish Periodical Center and the American Jewish Archives in Cincinnati.
