O’Malley Library – Virtual Campus Tour

August 21, 2019 0 By Stanley Isaacs


Whether you’re looking for a cozy place
to study, a quiet meeting spot or resources for your assignments– The Mary Alice and
Tom O’Malley Library has everything you need. This modern space was built around Manhattan
College’s original library, The Cardinal Hayes Library, which dates back to the 1930s. Just go down the main staircase to see the
beautiful historic architecture. The library is open 24/7 during the school
year. It has nearly 450,000 books, 185,000 periodicals,
presentation spaces for events, like the Alumni room, and study rooms for individual and group
study like the Covino room and the south computer study room on the 2nd floor. Check out the Google jamboards to help make
your study sessions interactive. You’ll also find computer labs galore, with
over 100 computers and all the printers you need. If you’re looking for color printing, stop
by the fifth floor. In addition to our online and print collections,
you also have access to the inter-library loan service connecting you to libraries worldwide. Whether you’re on or off campus, the Library
website provides you with access to over 200 databases, containing hundreds of journals,
books, and reference materials. On the fifth floor, stop in to see the Holocaust,
Genocide and Interfaith Education Center Gallery. The HGI center is committed to fostering acceptance
and understanding among religions, cultures, and communities. The archives on the second floor contain the
fascinating historical records of Manhattan College and the Brothers of the Christian
Schools. The radiological and health professions department
has a cutting-edge Virtual Environment Radiotherapy Treatment lab on the first floor. This virtual reality experience trains future
radiation therapists with state of the art technology to destroy cancer cells. Stop by the reference desk for assistance
from our friendly reference librarians. No matter what your subject, there’s a librarian
with expertise in all subject areas. They even teach information literacy and advanced
research classes. Right next to the Internet Cafe, when the
weather’s nice, or if you need a breath of fresh air during your studying, the outdoor terrace offers a great space to eat lunch or study outside. Right upstairs, you’ll find the Admissions
Office, home to our friendly campus tour guides who you might see showing around some future
Jaspers.
