People & Values

Barnard library is a place for research, curiosity, innovation and so much more. Our expert staff is here to guide you through it.

We aim to create an environment that allows for the respectful use of shared resources, while adhering to our values inclusion, anti-oppression, privacy and support. Our Community Guidelines provide a shared understanding of what students, faculty, visitors and staff can expect from each other.

Our mission is rooted in our values: We believe diversity, openness, privacy engagement, and critical thinking are key to advancing women's education and scholarship.
