We do not know at this point what access will look like in the fall, and are awaiting further information from the University administration, who have set policies on access throughout the pandemic based on safety concerns for the community. In the meantime, we can offer some remote reference and research opportunities, as well as reproduction services. If you are interested in these, please let us know by emailing the general email address with information as to what you are interested in.

We are excited to announce the launch of our new digital exhibit, No Turning Back: Ten Years After Occupy. We believe that the project will be of great interest to the ALBA community, as Occupy was an important turning point for the history of social activism across the globe. The exhibit was curated by Shannon O’Neill, Curator for Tamiment-Wagner Collections, and Mike Koncewicz, Michael Nash Archivist & Ewen Center Program Coordinator, with input from Web Archivist Nicole Greenhouse. It was designed by Marii Nyrop using Wax. Michael Stasiak and DLTS imaged the oversized materials in the exhibit. This exhibit would additionally not be possible without support from NYU Special Collections, Archives and Collections Management, and the Barbara Goldsmith Conservation and Preservation Department. We give our gratitude to the Occupy Wall Street Archives Working Group, John Penley, and Robert Reiss, all of whom contributed the collection material upon which this exhibit draws. We appreciate their trust in our ability to responsibly care for, and provide access to, their records. The exhibit is dedicated to the memories of Faith Laugier and David Graeber.

We are hosting a wide range of virtual programs, with the hopes of bringing back in-person events in 2022. Feel free to email us at if you have an idea for a book talk.
