Library Access

The Sotheby's Institute of Art NY Library is reserved for the use of SIA students, faculty, staff, and visiting researchers.

Sotheby's Institute of Art - London Students
Students currently enrolled in the London MA programs may use the SIA-NY Library.

Subsequent visits will only require presentation of your valid SIA student card.
Borrowing privileges are determined on a case-by-case basis as current New York MA students have priority for circulating materials.
