Our Personal Librarian Program gives every library user an immediate and direct link to the library, a go-to person for all things library-related.
Meet the Team
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.
Commitment to Values
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.
We believe all students deserve to be able to access course texts. The high costs of textbooks and other course materials prohibit access and perpetuate inequity, and Barnard librarians and library staff are partnering with students, faculty, and staff to increase access.
Engage & Connect
Our Circulation & Help Desk Staff can help you find materials, guide you through our policies, and answer any questions that come up while using the library
Our student employees are a key part of our staff. From cataloguing zines to coding websites, we give student employees high-value work they can learn from.
