The physical library is a place where Lehigh faculty, students, and staff gather to study, conduct research, generate ideas, and create scholarship.  It is a space where we connect with one another and with the larger world of ideas and information. It is where we link the past to the present in order to create the future.  


The Fairchild Martindale Library and Computing Center (FML), built in 1960 and expanded in 1980, must be transformed if it is to meet the needs of an expanding student and faculty population whose expectations of a collegiate library have changed dramatically.  By making more scholarly materials available online, we have created opportunities for new active learning areas, flexible spaces for student study and collaboration; labs for digital scholarship, data visualization and virtual reality labs; and cutting-edge classrooms that enable faculty experimentation in their curriculum and teaching.


With your help we can create more of these transformative places and spaces for our students and faculty.  Thank you. Your gift will directly enhance the Lehigh academic experience.
