NYPD personnel do not need to register before visiting the Library. You will need to bring your NYPD photo ID on your first visit to the Library and you must also sign in at the Circulation Desk, unless you have a Manhattan College library card.
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.
