Leonard Lief Library

The Leonard Lief Library is named after the founding president of Lehman College. The collections, staff members, and programs support Lehman's undergraduate and graduate curriculum. Reference librarians provide assistance to students, faculty, and visitors and offer bibliographic instruction sessions.

This website has links to the CUNY+ library catalog, licensed electronic databases and journals, plus a collection of authoritative research websites. Electronic resources are available to the Lehman community off-campus and onsite.

We offer an open stacks book collection of 575,160 volumes, which is supplemented by a microfilm collection and growing media holdings. The Library is a designated Federal depository for government documents.

Students and faculty may borrow books from other CUNY libraries directly from the CUNY+ catalog. Graduate students and faculty may request books and journal articles from libraries outside the CUNY system via Interlibrary Loan.

A continually updated Reserve collection includes current textbooks, journal articles, and course materials.
