Gourmet Magazine's Archive Finds A New Home
Fales already has about 20,000 volumes about food, with 1,500 titles from before the 20th century. The collection includes books and manuscripts documenting food with a particular emphasis on New York City. The Fales Library is open to all NYU students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni, researchers, and scholars from other institutions throughout the US and abroad but appointments are necessary for researchers looking to consult archival and manuscript materials. Private scholars and others need to make appointments to use both print and archival collection. The Fales Library operates on a closed stack system which means that books are retrieved for patrons who read them in the reading room but the books do not circulate outside of the library.
