Student access to rich academic resources is an essential goal of the library system at Lehigh. Librarians can create connections from CourseSite and other high use student spaces, physical or virtual, to our expanding virtual library where students can immerse themselves in scholarly and professional knowledge around the clock. Anytime, anywhere those learners encounter ideas in ways that encourage critical reading, thinking and writing and that facilitate self-directed learning.
Students doing honors work and writing senior and masters theses can greatly benefit from Lehigh's rich universe of library resources. Lehigh's librarians,who specialize in specific subject areas, are ready to help in this process. We are available to meet individually with students or their advisors to discuss the specific needs of their projects. Also, we can meet with classes to prepare students as they start on projects.
