Shut Up & Sproj!

Start being accountable to your Senior Project! We host a Zoom room four times weekly where you can work quietly on your project in the virtual presence of your peers: https://bard.zoom.us/j/94131442602. We check in with each other at the beginning and end of the session; in between, we mute ourselves.

Monday: 2:00-3:30 pm
Tuesday: 1:30-4:30 pm
Thursday: 2:30-5:30 pm
Friday: 2:00-3:30 pm

“Work” means anything that pushes your project forward—like making to-do lists, freewriting, composing emails to professors, taking notes on sources, researching. Whatever helps. If you get stuck, someone will be on hand to meet with you in a breakout room to listen to your ideas and offer guidance.

New service! Request scans of Stevenson materials!

We’re pleased to announce that you can now request scans of Stevenson Library materials!

If you need a single chapter of a book, an article from one of our print periodicals, or a section of a reference book, simply place an article or book chapter request through ILLiad. To use this service, simply fill out an ILLiad book chapter or article request form.  You will receive an email notification from ILLiad when your document is ready. Requests will be filled within 1-3 business days.

This service is intended to increase access to our collection while the library building is closed.

Questions about this service can be directed to Shea Wert at swert@bard.edu .

Abolition/Resistance Exhibit

An drawing of Caucasian Americans on the left fighting with African Americans on the right.

From Europe to Africa to the Americas, the deepest story of colonial settlement is resistance to racial oppression. Guided by his discerning collector’s eye and deep commitment to civil rights, Alan Sussman amassed an unparalleled collection of works on transatlantic slavery and the struggle against subjugation.
