Bentley University

The mission of the Bentley University Library is to support and enrich the university’s academic research and educational curriculum goals by serving as a gateway to information, providing access to quality resources, and improving institutional outcomes through the teaching of information literacy.

Through the integration of print and electronic resources, collection development, resource sharing, and student and faculty support, the library endeavors to ensure access to a continually expanding depth and breadth of knowledge and information.

The library was one of the first buildings to open on the Waltham campus in 1968 when Bentley moved from its downtown Boston location. Since then, the library and its majestic clock tower, which was added in 1973, have served as the distinctive centerpiece of the University's beautiful upper campus.

The building is also home to Einstein's Deloitte Café, The RSM Art Gallery, Client Services, the ESOL Center, and the Writing Center. With 743 comfortable study seats, 186 study carrels, 83 public computer workstations, 24 group study rooms, a research instruction classroom, and wireless network access throughout, the Bentley Library is truly the hub of the academic campus.
