About the Library


The Peggy Wines Memorial Library, named after the College’s former president, the late Dr. Margaret (Peggy) Wines, is a major component of the Helene Fuld educational experience. The Library houses a collection of books and periodicals selected to meet curriculum needs and student and faculty research interests. The library’s collections are supplemented by memberships in resource‐sharing consortia. These partnerships are integrated into the borrowing services provided through the interlibrary loan service and serve to expand the range of materials available to students. Audiovisual and computer assisted instructional resources supplement classroom instruction, enhance learning, and provide a means of independent study and research.

To access the library’s electronic resources, students can use their own mobile devices to connect to the Internet through the College’s WiFi network or use one of the 24 Internet connected desktop computers in the library. The library has a high speed laser printer and a color copier for student use. The Library maintains an Intranet portal that provides access to the library’s online catalog, course specific learning resources, electronic reference sources, online databases, and additional links to external sites of student and faculty interest. The Library also has space for group study.

The Library is staffed Monday through Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 7:45 p.m. and on Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m. and can be contacted by phone at 212-616-7269 or by sending an email to library@helenefuld.edu.


Instructions on the use of databases and other online resources are available on a one-to-one and small-group basis. Contact the library staff to schedule a session at library@helenefuld.edu
