Library & Technology Services is pleased to share with you the first issue of LTS talk. This concise, mobile device-friendly newsletter will focus on news and information to help you in your teaching, learning, research and administrative activities. This issue highlights some of the many activities and projects undertaken this summer by LTS staff to advance the work of Lehigh University.

Teaching & Learning


  • In honor of the 150th anniversary of Lehigh's founding, the Libraries have created a new collection called Early Publications of the Lehigh Faculty in Lehigh Preserve, Lehigh University's institutional repository. This collection presents a selection of the scholarly papers written by Lehigh faculty prior to 1923.
  • Moved the current journals print collection to the first floor of the E. W. Fairchild-Martindale Library (EWFM)
  • Increased student study and collaborative space on the 2nd floor of Fairchild-Martindale
  • Moved collections from EWFM to Linderman Library - the Microfilm collection and the Folklore, Costumes, Social Customs (390 Dewey Classification) book and journal collections were moved to Linderman ground floors
  • Installed new software and refined workflows to increase efficiencies in book ordering and filling inter-library loan requests resulting in better turnaround time for library researchers
  • Expanded descriptions of many books/titles held in the Library Materials Center, making them easier to search and find in ASA, our online catalog.
