Request a Class or Organization Visit to the Map Division

The Lionel Pincus and Princess Firyal Map Division hosts introductory sessions and subject-specific research classes. If your institution is interested in bringing a class to the Library, please use the form below to provide us with details on your class, your reason for visiting, and the pedagogical goals for the students. Please note that requests to teach with our collections will require a consultation with library staff ahead of time.

Requests should be made with at least six weeks notice. Once submitted, you should receive a response within 5 business days. While we will do our best to accommodate your class, we may not be able to fulfill your request due to a number of factors including staff limitations, space availability, and scheduling conflicts.

For K-12 classes, please contact the Library’s Youth Information Services department at schoolvisits@nypl.org
Building tour requests should be directed to tours@nypl.org. More information about tours can be found here.
