General Information - Library Services

The world is quiet here!

The New York Automotive and Diesel Institute is home to a full service library in a recently redesigned space. We serve the entire NYADI community, but our focus is on the students and their academic and lifelong learning needs.  There are computers and a printer, a quiet study space for individuals, small group tables, and an instruction/meeting space.

A comprehensive collection of books and periodicals on automobiles, trucks, buses, and motorcycles is complemented by a general education collection.  We also purchase biographies' novels, and reference books.   All titles are easily accessed through our online catalog.

A selection of internet resources and documents, along with the NYADI Library online catalog are accessed through the online library guide which is the gateway to all your library resources.

Our library also subscribes to all hardcopy (paper) magazines in the automotive and diesel field that are published in English.  We also purchase copies of general interest magazines on popular subjects so students can keep up with their interests or find new ones.

Patricia a. Hollander, MLS has over 38 years of experience as a professional librarian.  She has worked as an administrator in public libraries and college libraries.  Her preference, however, is helping users to find and use information and its sources.  Ask for her assistance; she will be glad to help!

Miss Hollander is available to help students, faculty, and staff find and select appropriate information, use the computers and computer programs, and format and write their assignments.
