The Janis P. Bellack Library & Study Commons, named for the Institute's 5th President, is located on the entire top floor of Building 38 – one street away from the school's Catherine Filene Shouse main academic building on 1st Avenue in the Charlestown Navy Yard. The Commons has 9,000 square feet where students can study and learn in an interprofessional environment.

The Library features a room for quiet study and a collaborative space for group learning. The library collection includes access to thousands of electronic journals and books and a community health collection that includes anatomical models and patient education materials. Institute librarians are on hand to help students access the electronic collection of the Treadwell Library at Massachusetts General Hospital – See online Library resources and services.
