Mission Statement

The SVA Library is a major resource for art and design study, developed over the course of 60 years to foster the college’s intellectual and creative life. Its rich print and digital collections directly support SVA’s undergraduate and graduate curricula, and provide inspiration, establish context and widen perspectives. Library instructional services have been developed to sharpen students’ critical thinking and provide information literacy for lifelong learning.

Since 1978 the SVA Library has been located at 380 Second Avenue in the Gramercy section of Manhattan, and in 2018 the library’s first permanent branch, SVA Library West, was established to better serve our expanding campus. Both locations provide comfortable, accessible and attractive spaces on campus where the SVA community can relax, study and collaborate. A knowledgeable and responsive library staff is available to assist with collections and services.

Find us at 380 Second Ave, 2nd Floor, New York, NY 10010 or call us at 212.592.2660

 

Mission Statement

Located on the 4th floor of SVA's main building, the SVA Film Library is a repository of cinematic history, with over 3,000 DVDs and Blu-rays. The collection is divided according to genre, with the exception of the Director's Wall, which is designed as a resource for film students eager to study and analyze the career arc of noteworthy directors. The library also serves as an archive for BFA Film and Animation alumni work, and staff work continuously to convert and preserve films stored using archaic formats.

Find us at 209 East 23rd St, Room 401, New York, NY 10010, call us at 212.592.2193 or email at filmlibrary@sva.edu

  • Fines

    Patrons with fines of $20 and over, or with unresolved library issues cannot check materials out, register for classes, graduate, get grades or transcripts. The library is not responsible for notifying borrowers of their overdue materials. Overdue notices are issued only as a courtesy via your SVA email account. Failure to receive reminders or overdue notices does not excuse borrowers from the responsibility of returning or renewing items on time to avoid penalties.

     

    Lost & Damaged Materials

    Patrons who return library materials with damage will be charged a ‘damaged item’ or ‘replacement and processing fee,’ based on the damage incurred. Items returned with post-its, page markers, or bent pages will be charged $2 per page. Items returned with underlining or writing will be charged $1-5 per page. Items returned with permanent damage, including water, paint, ink and cut and torn pages will need to be replaced at the borrower's expense. Items overdue by three months automatically lapse into 'Lost' status and the Library has the right to replace these items and bill the patron.

    Item Replacement Fee Processing Fee
    Books $ 60 $10
    Media $ 60 $10
    Pictures $ 2 $10 per folder
    Comics $ 60 $10
    Film scripts $ 60 $10
  • Renewing

    In VISION, the library catalog, click on “My Account” to see your currently charged items, their due dates and your fines. You can renew items if they are not on hold for someone else, or if you do not have $20 or more in fines or outstanding lost items.

  • Reserves

    The Reserve Collection ensures that required readings for classes are always available to students. You can look them up by your instructor’s name, or by item, and bring the call number to the circulation desk. Reserves are available for two-hour in-library use.

  • Collection Development

    The SVA Library's Collection Development Policy provides an overall plan and specific guidelines for the development and management of the collections at the SVA Library. It seeks to make the best use of resources currently available and to clearly state the principles used for selecting and acquiring materials.

    SVA Library Collection Development Policy

  • Security

    A security guard, surveillance cameras and a detection gate are used to monitor the flow of materials in and out of the library. You must always carry your valid SVA ID with you and show it to the security guard. In addition, the SVA Library reserves the right to examine any backpack, bag, portfolio or other carrying device of anyone using the library. Any student found defacing, or attempting to steal, any library materials will risk the loss of library privileges and suspension from SVA.
