We are supporting you remotely! Barnard Library staff are providing remote services while the Library is physically closed this fall: see our guide to current Barnard Library services.

Spaces

Design, Make, Innovate

Our Design Center, Post-Production Lab, and Zine Library give you the tools to take your ideas from concept to reality. Here's just a tiny sampling of what you can do:

  • Print a 3D model with an Ultimaker
  • Prototype an app design with Sketch software
  • Program a Raspberry Pi sensor and build a robot
  • Design, sew, mend and embroider your own clothes
  • Publish a zine and contribute to feminist, critical creation

 

Create, Move, Produce

Anyone in the community can push boundaries and create original content with support from the Movement Lab, Media Center and IMATS. Here's just a couple of ways to participate:

  • Record and produce your own podcast
  • Take a workshop in motion sensor technology
  • Borrow a camera to shoot a documentary
  • Create animated videos with Adobe AfterEffects
  • Meditate during Stillness Lab events 

Gather, Interpret, Display

We offer tools and support for the entire data analysis process, from data collection to visual presentations. Here's just a few of the things the Empirical Reasoning Center, Computational Science Center, and Digital Humanities Center can help you with:

  • Writing clear and constructive survey questions
  • Automating the process of cleaning data with Python
  • Learning how to test for statistical significance in Excel 
  • Making interactive maps with GIS software
  • Using web applications to compare texts and translations
