Yes, the New School Libraries and Archives tries to collect three copies of each issue.

You can help the New School Libraries and Archives to document our university’s history by donating multiple copies of your journal, magazine, zine, or newspaper.

The first copy is retained by the New School Archives and Special Collections in its New School Periodicals Collection, with access to the publication by appointment in the Archives’ reading room in 66 Fifth Avenue. Holdings information is available on inquiry to the New School Archives.

The second copy is made available through the Libraries. These copies are cataloged in the online catalog. Periodicals can be consulted on site only; they do not circulate.

The third copy becomes part of Special Collections, with access to the publication by appointment at the University Center Library Circulation Desk or in the Archives’ reading room. These copies are cataloged in the online catalog.

We also accept donations of books authored and published by The New School and its community members. We request two copies of each, one for borrowing through the Libraries and one for preservation in Special Collections.

Please contact us for more details by e-mail archivist@newschool.edu or by phone at 212.229.5942.
