Two library systems for HSAS students
HSAS students have access to two library systems: the New York Public Library and the Lehman College Library.
New York Public Library provides electronic resources online from anywhere as well as onsite resources in library locations. Requires a NYPL card and PIN.
Lehman College Library offers:
The Leonard Lief Library
The Leonard Lief Library (Lief is pronounced "leaf") on the Lehman College campus is a spacious, well-equipped home base for research and study.
HSAS students may use this library until 8 p.m. during regular college sessions.
During school hours, students may come to the library during their lunch period.
Temporary Pandemic Situation
During the COVID-19 pandemic, from 2020 to the present, HSAS students have not been allowed free access to the Lehman College campus--and therefore to the Leonard Lief Library--unless they are enrolled in Lehman classes and the Lehman ID that provides. We are working to change this situation, but as of September 2, 2022, HSAS students who are not taking classes at Lehman continue to be restricted from campus and library access. Once this changes, HSAS students will have physical access to the library and will be able to check out books from our circulating collection of some 370,000 volumes. Borrowing privileges will require the submission of a registration form signed by a parent or guardian.
