New Lakeland Library Staff!

Archives in the Library

Archive folders and boxes

The Library Archive Project has been established to digitize selected college documents, making them accessible to students, faculty, staff and future generations. Fragile historic pieces have been digitally preserved and made available for online access and research. Check out digitized Lakeland class catalogs from the archive! Can't find the year you need? Contact Reference at 440-525-7425 or email

Accessibility in the Library

Bowl of Serials


Can I check out a magazine?

Yes! Serials, aka magazines, can be checked out of Lakeland's Library. Maybe you need an article from Scientific American or you want to browse through an issue of Sports Illustrated, just take the magazine to the circulation desk and we will check it out to you.

Welcome to Fall 2021!

Welcome back


Some things never change, other things never stop changing. For the first time since the pandemic started, Lakeland Library will be fully open to the campus and community. So, welcome back, indeed! We have made a lot of changes over the last year and a half. In this edition of the Lakeland Library Newsletter, you will find out about the library’s new hours, new employees, new books, new services, and new resources. What has not changed is our commitment to serving the information needs of Lakeland students, faculty, and staff. We hope to see you in the library soon!

Welcome Days

During that time, students are invited to find the library on the third floor of C-building and receive a free giveaway!  Phone 440.525-7424 for more information.

Read: "The Daughters of Erietown"

Part tragic love story, part powerful testament to shifting cultural norms and the evolution of the women’s movement, The Daughters of Erietown is an impressive first novel with a big heart.” ~BookPage
