Eugene M. and Christine E. Lynn Library

The mission of the Lynn University Library is to partner with the Lynn community to pursue lifelong learning and discovery. Within a dynamic, student-centered and collaborative environment, our information experts provide both innovative and traditional resources, technologies, and educational services.

The library’s vision is to be a leader in the realization of the 21st century academic library. As the intellectual and physical nucleus of our University, we will proactively meet the information needs of our diverse communities, at any time and in any place. We will prepare students for success in life as information-savvy, global citizens.

The library’s learning resources include a collection of approximately 100,000 physical items, including books, journals, magazines, CDs, music scores and DVDs. We also have a textbook collection, which includes at least one copy of every textbook required for courses, available for 3-hour loan. The library’s large collection of popular DVDs, known as The Lynn Parents and Families Collection of Great Movies can be checked out for personal viewing. The library’s electronic resources are vast. A carefully selected collection of research databases contains more than 100,000 e-journal titles, thousands of streaming videos, biographical information, market and company research, reference e-books, statistics, images, and more, and is accessible through the library website. The library also has more than 200,000 e-books that are accessible via the Web. All e-resources are available on- or off-campus, 24 hours a day.

The library has about 70 PC and Mac workstations, several high-speed scanner/printers, and wireless access is available throughout the building. There is a Music Library, primarily serving students and faculty of the Conservatory of Music, with thousands of scores, books, CDs, and streaming music. The Perper Coffee House, located just inside the main entrance to the right, is open seven days a week and offers a variety of refreshments and snacks.

In addition to the library’s services and learning resources, the building is home to the offices of the President Emeritus, the Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Chief Information Officer, Information Technology Support Services Desk, Eugene and Christine E. Lynn College of International Communication and the Center for Instructional Innovation.

Additional resources are available through Lynn Library’s membership in SEFLIN (Southeast Florida Library Information Network), providing students with direct access and borrowing privileges in dozens of regional academic and public libraries.
