Please visit our Remote Library Services guide to learn how we can assist you with distance learning and research as our campus responds to COVID-19.
Our Personal Librarian program gives library users a personalized and direct link to the library. Academic departments and students are matched with a librarian who serves as their main point of contact for the library - a go-to person for all things library-related. See below for Personal Librarian assignments.
We also provide library instruction, research consultations and online research guides. The Barnard librarians welcome questions from anyone in the Barnard/Columbia community. Visit, email or call us!
Personal Librarians by Department
Fall 2022 & Spring 2023 Incoming Students: By First Initial of Last Name
Sophomores/Undeclared Returning Students
If you a sophomore assigned a PL by the first initial of your last name last year, your personal librarian hasn’t changed! And all are welcome to continue reaching out to the librarian(s) they wish.
Don't have a Personal Librarian? If you are a Barnard student, faculty member or administrator, and would like to request a Personal Librarian, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
