Library Building Access for Charter Members of the WALDO Library Consortium
The library building is open to students, staff, and administrators from the charter member institutions of the WALDO library consortium. Those institutions are the College of Mount Saint Vincent, Manhattanville College, Marymount Manhattan College, Mercy College, Monroe College, Nyack College, Sarah Lawrence College, St. John's University, St. Thomas Aquinas College, The College of Westchester, and Wagner College.
Faculty of any college or university are welcome in the Library.
Visitors from WALDO charter member institutions do not need to register before visiting the Library. However, you will need to bring two things with you:
1. a photo ID issued by your college or university
2. a Visitor’s Green Pass (see below).
You must also sign in at the Circulation Desk.
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. Students, staff, and administrators from WALDO institutions are not eligible to borrow books or DVDs for use outside the Library.
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 WALDO affiliates are not allowed to bring guests to the Library.
If you have any questions, please contact Valerie Jimenez.
