Books and technology, print and electronic documents, databases, Special Collections, and multimedia are the various formats of the 21st century academic library. Providing both physical and virtual space, websites, and Group Study Rooms are some of the challenges in operating a Library round-the-clock, in a 24/7 digital environment.
We are proud of our light-filled building, and committed to outstanding user services. Ultimately, the strongest feature of our Library is our faculty and staff, who always seek ways to serve you better.
Kenneth Schlesinger, Chief Librarian
The Library supports Lehman’s educational mission, and is committed to providing staff, facilities, resources, technology, and services that meet the information and scholarly requisites of the College community, help foster personal and professional development, and inspire lifelong learning.
We are dedicated to:
Providing a friendly, welcoming environment
Maintaining a comfortable, attractive facility that promotes research and inquiry
Acquiring print, electronic, and multimedia resources that address curricular and research mandates
Encouraging information and computer literacy through instruction
Adopting innovative technologies that enhance research, teaching, and learning
Serving as a portal for acquisition and dissemination of scholarship and knowledge
Supporting research needs of the CUNY community and affiliates, as well as patrons consulting the Federal Government Documents Depository and Special Collections.
The Library collaborates with discipline faculty by encouraging the intellectual development and success of students. As Lehman students prepare for careers in a globalized society, they gain an appreciation for liberal arts, sciences, and current technologies.
Library faculty and staff promote a welcoming and user-friendly environment with flexible spaces for study, reflection, and group collaboration. The Library facilitates access to books, journals, documents, and multimedia - and features computer labs, exhibit, and public lecture spaces.
Curriculum and research support are delivered through accessible digital technologies, both onsite and remote. Library faculty provides point-of-need group and individualized research consultations - and is embedded in online teaching modules. Innovative and assistive technology devices engage students and their diverse learning styles through virtual instructional units, personalized consultations, and information literacy instruction.
Library faculty is recognized as campus leaders in fostering critical inquiry and development of skills needed to fulfill course research requirements, stimulate discovery, and engender lifelong learning.
Helping students and faculty navigate the complex information landscape draws on library faculty’s subject knowledge, search expertise, informed collection development competencies - as well as knowledgeable referrals.
Library faculty endorses best practices and invests in ongoing professional development for outstanding public services. We maximize deployment of innovative, emerging technologies, acknowledging the transforming needs of our multicultural, urban campus and the surrounding Bronx community. Ongoing assessment of library operations enhances its contributions to the College and creates a dynamic learning environment.
