The Madeleine Clark Wallace Library’s mission is to connect the Wheaton community to a world of ideas and information, creating an environment for self-exploration and boundless learning.

We offer the Wheaton College community a fabulous library and teaching/learning facility in the heart of campus with talented staff who delight in partnering with students, faculty and staff on academic and intellectual activities.

Access over 185,000 ebooks, 77,000 journals and newspapers, 81,000 streaming videos, and 100 research databases 24/7 from anywhere! Plus we have thousands of print books and DVDs, and rare books and archival material, too. Just search in the library catalog to find all this and more.

Almost all of your required textbooks are available through the library, either on course reserves at the Information and Circulation Desk on the Main Level, or as ebooks in the library catalog.

The library is open 114 hours a week. During Night Owl (the last two weeks of the semester), we’re open 24/7! Library liaisons who are happy to work with you on your research-based or tech-driven assignments.

The library provides many quiet places to study. If you are working on a group project, reserve a collaboration room – many of them have flat screen TVs that you can connect to your laptop.
