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 want to share the news that Michael Diggs is retiring from BLAIS on January 5th, 2021. We hope you will join us in celebrating his new beginning and his years of work with Barnard students, faculty, and colleagues. You may know some about his long service with the Barnard and Columbia communities. Michael has worked at Barnard since 2012, first as an Access Coordinator with Barnard Public Safety and, since 2013, as the Library Specialist for Course Reserves. Before coming to Barnard, he worked at Columbia University from 1987 through 2011, where he was Chief Administrator for the Center for Stem Cell Research, Department Administrator for Community Impact, Business Manager for the School of Law, and Executive Assistant for Government Relations and Community Affairs. He has had career paths in professional dance, the seminary, finance, and library work. Congratulations, Michael!
