The Library maintains secure electronic PDF files of past years’
examinations for students to use in their exam preparations. An archive of
these files is available through the NYLS Portal. Only NYLS students
and faculty with network accounts have access to the exams archive.
In addition, paper files of past years’ exams for courses being offered in the current semester are kept in the Library’s Reserve Collection.
STUDENTS PLEASE NOTE: Professors
are not required to release exams to the Library, and many choose not to
do so. Consequently, you may not be able to find an exam for
either your course or your professor.
FACULTY PLEASE NOTE: When preparing current exams, keep in mind that previous years’ examinations are available, or may have been available to students in the paper and electronic archives described above.
To submit an exam to the archive, please send an
electronic file (PDF or word processing) to email@example.com. Exams
are not sent automatically to the Library by the Registrar or any other
department. You or your faculty assistant must submit the ones you
want directly to us.
The Library will never make a past exam available without specific authorization from the faculty member who gave it. And, upon request of the faculty member, we will withdraw any exam at any time. Faculty members are encouraged to check the list of their available examinations periodically, to verify that the available exams are as intended.
All inquiries about past years’ exams should be addressed to Elina Oyola, Circulation Librarian, at 212.431.2148, firstname.lastname@example.org.
