About the Library

Manhattanville College Library—a home away from home for our students.

The library provides each student with ample opportunities to study, find readings, and broaden the mind. Whatever the major, we’ve got it covered.  Librarians are available in person or online. Every library staff member is here to help students achieve academic success.


The Manhattanville College Library is the intellectual and social center of Manhattanville, offering impressive collections and outstanding services to suit each user’s needs. Let us help you find the perfect sources for your research topics. Check out our online Library Guides to get right to the information you need. Come in and use the computers, printers, scanners, and copiers or log-in from anywhere with off-campus access. Found something you need that we don't have? No problem. Most materials can be requested through our convenient Interlibrary Loan service.

Attend special events including lectures and Midday Music in the Café. Get help with your classes at The Learning Commons, where the Academic Writing Center, Academic Resource Center, and Student Accommodations are conveniently located on the library first floor.


For your research needs, the library provides a large and diverse physical collection with nearly a quarter million books, journals, and magazines at your fingertips and many more digitally delivered through the library web site.
