Library Building Access for Off-duty NYPD Personnel
NYPD personnel do not need to register before visiting the Library. However, you will need to bring two things with you:
You will need to bring two things on your first visit to the Library:
1. your NYPD photo ID
2. a Visitor’s Green Pass (see below).
You must also sign in at the Circulation Desk, unless you have a Manhattan College library card.
To get your Green Pass, you’ll need to complete the Visitor version of the COVID-19 Symptom Tracker each time you visit (i.e., on the day of each visit, before you arrive). The form takes just a few seconds to complete. Each time, the system will issue a Visitor’s Green Pass. You may be asked for your Green Pass when you park on campus or when you enter the library building.
Masks are recommended for high-risk individuals and for those who have tested positive for COVID-19. If you would like a mask, please ask for one at the Circulation Desk.
You are welcome to use the Library’s computers or to use your own laptop. To use the Library’s computers, please ask at the Circulation Desk for the guest password. Printing, scanning, and copying are free, but please print double-sided, if possible.
As a visitor, you’ll have access to all our online resources—databases, journals, etc.—only when you’re physically on campus. If you’d like borrowing privileges—permission to check out print books and DVDs for use outside the Library—please contact Valerie Jimenez by e-mail. If you are granted borrowing privileges, you’ll be issued a library card and can show that card instead of your photo ID when entering the library building.
During the last week of classes and the week of final exams, the library building is open only to current Manhattan College students, faculty, staff, and administrators.
Visitors must use the main entrance to campus (rather than the entrance near the parking garage) after 9 pm on weekdays, after 8 pm on Saturdays, and all day Sunday. If you need to park on campus—in the parking garage near 4570 Manhattan College Parkway—please contact Valerie Jimenez with the date of your visit, your approximate arrival and departure times, and a very brief description of your vehicle.
Please note that NYPD personnel are not allowed to bring guests to the Library.
If you have any questions, please contact Valerie Jimenez.
