If you do not have access to the NYU Health Sciences Library, we suggest you try one of the following resources in New York City:

NYU Langone Health Information Specialists

Medical and consumer health information for NYULMC patients and family members.

Lillian & Clarence de la Chapelle Medical Archives

Official records of administrative and academic departments, audiovisual material, and manuscripts determined to be of value in documenting the history of the NYU Langone Medical Center and the NYU School of Medicine, as well as records of institutions that have merged with the School or Medical Center.
