From the SHARP-L listserv (14 December 2022) . . .

The New York Society Library offers e-memberships for those interested in access to its collection of 20+ electronic resources, including JSTOR, Project Muse, the America Founding Era Collection (papers and correspondence from several 18th-and early 19th-century figures), back issue archives for The TLS, The New York Review of Books, and the London Review of Books, various Oxford University Press databases (including the The Grove Dictionary of Art and the Oxford DNB), American National Biography, and many more. For leisure reading, the Library also offers databases of popular e-books and magazines (The Economist, The New Yorker, Harper’s, thousands more). Assistance with research questions is available by emailing the Reference Desk.

The E-membership costs $100 / year.

E-memberships also include 10 building visits annually, with access to the quiet study spaces and reading rooms in our beautiful, landmark Italianate building. (The membership does not include circulating privileges for the print collection or access to individual study rooms.)

The New York Society Library was founded in 1754 as a membership library. Various membership options provide circulating privileges from our collection of 300,000 volumes in open stacks, electronic resources, reading and study spaces, member-only events, and more. The Library is open to all for reading, reference, and many events. More information on e-memberships is available here: https://www.nysoclib.org/members/e-memberships.
