We are supporting you in-person and remotely! Seating, stacks and the Circulation & Help Desk are reopening on Tuesday, August 17 and we're retaining many virtual services. For more details, see our guide to current Barnard Library services.
Everyone at Barnard has a personal librarian, who serves as their main point of contact for the library - a go-to person for all things library-related. If you need individualized help for a project, you can schedule a research consultation with a librarian.
Find out how Barnard Library and Columbia Copyright Advisory Office offer support to faculty and students navigating a variety of copyright issues - including copyright law for e-resources and for faculty research.
Research & Citation Guides
Our team of personal librarians has put together guides to help you get started on your research. There's a guide for every subject taught at Barnard, as well as every First-Year Writing Seminar. Additionally, we offer guides for other select courses, citation software and general research topics.
Our library collections can play an important role in conducting research at Barnard. In addition to serving the needs of an undergraduate liberal arts college, we specialize in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Dance, and Art.
