We are supporting you remotely! Barnard Library staff are providing remote services while the Library is physically closed this fall: see our guide to current Barnard Library services.

We are inviting Barnard students who identify as first-generation and/or low-income students to complete the Barnard FLI Partnership Library Textbook Request Form before December 16 (at noon EST) to let us know what Spring 2021 textbooks you would like to request for mailing or pickup. We look forward to hearing from you!

The Barnard FLI Partnership Library builds a collection of textbooks used in core courses for Barnard majors and makes them available for free to self-identifying first-generation and/or low-income undergraduate students to check out for a whole semester. This semester we are doing limited mailing (if you’re off campus) or hold and pickup (if you’ll be on campus) for Barnard first-generation and/or low-income students. As always, we are also partnering with Barnard Course Reserves to make textbooks available through the Library as ebooks where possible.

All students can learn more about how to use the Barnard and CU Libraries to access course materials, even during this hybrid semester, on our Course Materials page.

And visit the Barnard FLI Partnership Library page to learn more about this collection. The Barnard FLI Partnership Library is a partnership between the Barnard Library, Columbia FLI Network Student Organization, and Barnard SGA.
