Due to COVID-19, Barnard Library is closed until further notice, with continuing of select library services. Please understand there may be interruptions in service as we support staff in this challenging time. Reach out to library@barnard.edu about course reserves, materials renewals, or fines and other questions, and refdesk@barnard.edu for research consultations and library instruction. See the IMATS site for assistance with distance learning.

Great news- it is now possible once again to request scans from Columbia offsite collections held at ReCAP. Offsite items available for scan requests will have the "Request: Offsite" links displayed in CLIO records. Physical delivery of ReCAP items has not yet resumed, so the offsite request form has been modified to only allow scan requests to be placed. 

CUL's reopening FAQ has been updated with this news. This page will be updated frequently- please take a look at it regularly, especially if you are responding to questions from our users via email or virtual reference. Please help spread the word about this high impact service to our users! 

Many thanks to the LIT team for the quick work in adding this functionality back into CLIO. 

For any questions on this, or other aspects of the Libraries Recovery Planning work, please email recovery@library.columbia.edu. 

Note BearStor items will become available for checkout once the Barnard Library has onsite staff.
