Services

The Help Desk will be open to answer library and technology questions, and can also be contacted through chat. View the Help Desk schedule here. Librarians are also available through chat, or can be contacted by submitting this request form.  If you have a specialized help request the Help Desk cannot solve, they will direct your question to the correct contact. (Note that not all LTS services are available onsite. View this page to read more. ) 

Collections

To discover our ebook collections, you can check the library catalog to see if the title you need is available as an ebook (search by title, then choose “eBook” from the right hand side “Format” filter). If you need an ebook copy of a book, submit a request for digital access via this Electronic Resource Request Form, and library staff will do our best to obtain the material you need in digital form.

Additionally, the library maintains an extensive collection of digital content that is available to you from anywhere in the world:

  • Search in any of our databases for journal articles, streaming video, data and statistics, visual media, and many other types of content.
  • Look for a specific journal in our journals directory, or enjoy a digital reading experience through the Browzine app or desktop program.
  • Access any of our digitized Special Collections content here, or email Special Collections staff for specialized help with historical material.

 
For books and materials not found in the library catalog and are not available in digital format, use the ILL request form to request titles from other libraries. At this time Lehigh is starting to borrow more books from other University libraries that are offering some services.

Print books are available for pickup at the following location:

  • Curbside in front of the Fairchild Martindale Library

Self-retrieval from the stacks is also possible for those who have swipe access to the library buildings.

In order to obtain a physical book by request, first search the library catalog to find titles currently in the Lehigh collection. Click on the book title, and then click the "Request This" link. Login and submit the request. Once the Library receives the request, an email will be sent in 2 days to the requestor to schedule a pick up outside at FML next to the LOVE sculpture on ASA Drive. The curbside service will be available 9:00 am- 5:00 pm Monday-Friday. If you have any questions on requesting materials or pick up of materials, please email: inlend@lehigh.edu or call 610-758-4992.
