The new state-of-the-art library blends the latest new learning
technologies with design elements of the historic Dominican
The Kaplan Family Library and Learning Center Library opened in
2014 on two floors of the College's Dominican Center, consolidating
research and information services at the Mount. Library faculty and
staff are dedicated to helping students find the information they
need to successfully complete assignments, term papers,
presentations, and projects.
The library provides traditional research resources and services
in a high-tech learning environment. There are more than 60
computer workstations in the library, as well as space for group
work and quiet study.
Librarians help MSMC students master information literacy skills
through classroom instruction, individual assistance at the
reference desk, and in-depth, one-on-one research
The library offers an extensive collection of books and
periodicals, research databases, online journals, e-books, media,
and recreational reading. Through its website, students can search for
information, ask questions, renew library materials, learn to
create bibliographies, and more.
