Changes to Mobile Services

Support for the library's mobile app has been discontinued. However the  Library's new catalog, QuickSearch, is mobile friendly. Just go to on your phone or tablet's browser and start searching! Several library databases are also mobile-friendly.

Also, the Ask a Librarian 24/7 service was discontinued due to low usage.  Please text us your questions at (914) 288-6288.


QuickSearch- The New Library Catalog!

QuickSearch represents the first major upgrade of our library catalog in ten years.

Among the new features you will enjoy:

● A faster, more attractive  search interface

● Search results that include links to related articles

● Results refined by date,  subject, or material type

● User-created tags for customized searches and lists

● Direct Export to RefWorks

● Hold placement for most  checked-out items

● Mobile friendly! Just go to on your phone or tablet's browser and start searching


Research Toolkit ePortfolio Template

Nancy Bobrek, Coordinator of Patron Services, proposed to create a form to help librarians and students manage research projects.  The library staff had lots of helpful feedback.  The result is a template within the Digication ePortfolio system that anyone at Manhattanville can use! 

You must be logged into Digication to view the template:

We hope this will:

  • Help students understand steps in the research process

  • Avoid duplication of effort by faculty, librarians and writing consultants when assisting students

  • Present a range of sources students should be using for college research

  • Educate students about mobile apps currently available to support the research process

  • Encourage students to evaluate sources before incorporating them into research projects

  • Begin to provide reusable instructional components that faculty can incorporate into their courses

Your suggestions for improvement are welcome!


New Water Bottles

Instead of throwing away hundreds of cups per week, we are now offering shiny red stainless steel water bottles for $5 at the service desk.  The water dispenser on the ground floor has been a bigger success than we ever imagined. Enjoy some cool water or your favorite instant beverage sustainably!
