Consult a Librarian! 

A reference librarian is available anytime the library is open. Check our current hours on the right-hand side of all our pages and feel free to visit the Reference Desk (located across from the Circulation Desk on the first floor of the library). If you are not on campus and need research assistance, you can call a librarian (212-774-4808) or virtually ask them a question via Ask-a-Librarian.  We can answer questions by email. We also set up appointments. 

Digital resources are also accessible outside of the library via the library’s databases and e-journals page. You will need your current network login and password for off-campus access.


 

Faculty: 

If you would like a librarian to come your class to explain how to access library resources, please email Tammy Wofsey at twofsey@mmm.edu.

Marymount Manhattan College’s Center for Teaching Innovation and Excellence (C-TIE) can help your scholarship improve your work as a teacher and mentor. For programs and services, see the C-TIE website.
