Meredith Wisner

Research & Instruction Librarian for Art & Architecture




Milstein 306


I’m the Art and Architecture Librarian at Barnard. I have a Master’s in the History of Art and Design, and Master’s in Library and Information Science, with a certificate in archives. My own scholarly interests lean toward contemporary photography, but I’m a generalist at heart and can help you with any topic. I’ve spent many years working in archives, and I’m passionate about incorporating primary resources into research projects. I also happen to be Barnard Library’s resident copyright librarian and Wikipedian.
