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.

Miriam Neptune discusses new library initiatives in the Library Journal's article "How COVID-19 Has Transformed Reference Services for Public and Academic Libraries" by Mahnaz Dar. She speaks about added features, like videos on Barnard librarians' online profiles, that help facilitate interactions remotely. Neptune also discusses inequities regarding students' access to equipment in remote environments, stating "Librarians have always been great at that. We are the people who notice that not everyone has access to a computer, not everybody has great Wi-Fi." Barnard is continuing its efforts in dealing with such issues.

Students can access remote library resources on the library guides website.
