The circulation desk is right by the main entrance, adjacent to the reserve desk. Circulation is where you check out, return, and renew materials. It's on the first floor.

Reserve Desk

This is where you can borrow textbooks and required reading for classes. It's on the first floor. Not all class textbooks are available. Reserve books are checked out for two hours, cannot be taken out of the library, and carry high late fees.

Computer Lab

Computers are available on every floor. There are Apple computers on the main floor. The rest are PCs. There is a computer lab in the basement. The computers do not require a login and are first come/first served. Students print using their Lehman email accounts, which is also used for wifi access.

The stacks are self-service aisles of bookshelves where users can browse and locate books themselves. Lehman's stacks hold about 370,000 volumes. The stacks fill the second and third floors. The stacks on the first floor offer reference books, which are non-circulating (i.e., they cannot be checked out).
