Vision Statement

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 skills, 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. Ongoing assessment of library operations enhances its contributions to the College and creates a dynamic learning environment.
