Lesley University Library Remote Services Guide

Welcome!

Welcome to your Lesley Library Remote Services Guide!  As we rollout more in-person services we will continue to offer our robust array of remote services, including virtual library reference services and research help.  Scroll down for updated info on all of our services and resources and how to access them.

Whether you're studying and creating on campus or from home this year, we've got your back!

Accessing Materials

Search for electronic materials you can access anywhere, and physical materials you can schedule for pick-up, using the @LL Search bar on the library homepage: research.lesley.edu

Instructions for Linking to Electronic Materials:

Click on the title of a resource in your search results to view the full record. Click the Permalink button on the right-hand side and copy that link that pops up (links copied from the URL bar at the top will not work for others even if they work for you).

Instructions for Requesting New Materials:

To request an addition to our collections for consideration, you may use our Resource Request form. We prioritize e-books and streaming media for course materials, and can even purchase electronic versions of current print holdings.

Instructions for Picking Up Physical Materials:

Moriarty Library will be open from 10-6, Monday through Thursday for community members already approved to return to campus. Pickup appointments are available for all other members of the Lesley community for Sherrill and Moriarty materials. Please email asklib@lesley.edu to make an appointment.

Instructions for Returning Materials: 

Checked out materials can be returned in the Library book drops outside of Sherrill Hall, Moriarty Library, and UHALL 3rd floor. Overdue fines will not accrue on Lesley materials this semester. Please start to return any books you are no longer using if you can, and if you want to keep them for longer or cannot return them right now, please email us at asklib@lesley.edu.

Study Spaces

Campus buildings are only accessible to community members approved to visit campus, until the University moves to the next phase of the return plan.

Study spaces in the Sherrill Hall upper and lower atrium, including desktop computers, printers, scanners and copiers, are available according to Sherrill Hall building hours, 7am to 10pm, 7 days a week.

Group study rooms are available on the Sherrill Hall lower level (Room 041) and first floor (Room 141). They are available by ID card access on a first come, first serve basis. Sherrill Rm 010 is available by ID card access when not in use for classes.

Study carrels on the Sherrill Hall 2nd and 3rd floors are unavailable due to construction.

Study spaces in the Lunder Arts Center are available, even when the study spaces inside Moriarty Library are not.  Computers and printers are also available in Lunder, on the lower level. Study spaces in the Lunder Arts Center will be available 7am to 12am, 7 days a week.
