Q. How long can I borrow a book?




Library borrowing periods depend on whether you are a student, or are a faculty or staff member at Lehman, and  are as follows:

The CUNY Libraries’ Circulation Committee recommended, and the Council of Chief Librarians approved, a standardized loan period for the initial loan of books:

  • CUNY Undergraduate students: 4 weeks (28 days)
  • CUNY Graduate students: 6 weeks (42 days)
  • CUNY Doctoral students: 8 weeks (56 days)
  • CUNY Staff: 4 weeks (28 days)
  • CUNY Faculty: 8 weeks (56 days), although a college may give a longer loan period to their own faculty

Full details about CUNY's current borrowing policies can be found at Access and Borrowing – The City University of New York (cuny.edu) and on Circulation – The City University of New York (cuny.edu).
