The library staff helps you find information in the library and online. You may borrow materials, check out a museum pass, get research assistance, study in a quiet space, work on a group project, or store your laptop in a locker while you go to lunch.
Borrow books, videos, and teaching resources at Sherrill and Moriarty libraries. Bring your Lesley ID to the circulation desk at either location to set up your library account.
Faculty place materials on reserve at the Circulation Desks for you to borrow for short-term use, enabling more people to share a necessary title. For details, see the Reserves Guide.
If you need a book, book chapter, article or video that the library does not own, request a copy through Interlibrary Loan.
If you need help narrowing your topic, searching for articles or books, or formatting your citations, ask for reference help, or Ask-A-Librarian.
Individual study carrels and group study rooms are available on a limited basis at the Sherrill Library. You may reserve a study space on the web, or by calling the Sherrill circulation desk at 617.349.8850.
Librarians collaborate with faculty to support the library collections and research needs of each academic department across the university. The library staff welcomes faculty suggestions for additions to the collections. Contact your Library Liaison for more information.
Library staff members teach students how to find and evaluate resources for creative projects and course assignments. Sessions are tailored to the individual course or program and may feature visual literacy, information literacy or media literacy. Contact an instruction librarian for more information.
Students taking courses off-campus or online can access the library's resources and services remotely through the myLesley portal.
A variety of library services are available after you graduate. Contact the Alumni Relations Office about these and other university privileges.
Passes providing free admission to the Griffin Photography Museum and the USS Constitution Museum are available. Ask at the Moriarty Library (617.349.8070) or the Sherrill Library (617.349.8850).
Want a place to stash your stuff between classes? Currently enrolled Lesley students may rent a Sherrill Hall locker for the semester by contacting Public Safety, 1st floor, Burnham Hall.
