Yes, Bard Library does provide online access to the New York Times for current Bard students, staff and faculty! You can access the NY Times by going to our Databases page and navigating to the letter N and selecting either New York Times From 1851 to 3 Years Ago (Proquest Historical Newspapers) or New York Times From 6/1/1980 – Present (NexisUni). Here’s a short video tutorial on accessing and using these resources: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kmVxhea5Qbk.
Want to look at examples of previous senior projects for inspiration? Maybe you need ideas for formatting and style? Or maybe you just need a good guide for what a SPROJ should look like in your field? We have created a list of senior project examples that faculty and library staff have selected for you to browse and download: https://libguides.bard.edu/sprojexamples. We will continue to update this list over the next few weeks.

Current Bard students, staff and faculty now have remote access to all senior projects on Bard Digital Commons. You can browse and search our collections at https://digitalcommons.bard.edu/undergrad/. Please note that this is a temporary measure to provide access to authorized users who would under normal circumstances have access. All copyrights and license agreements still apply.
To access a campus-only project remotely, click on the “Bard Off Campus Download” button and you will be prompted to enter your Bard username and password. Then you will be taken directly to the PDF of the senior project.
If you do NOT see the Off Campus Download button, that project is available open access.
All Bard students now have access to a template in Google Docs for their Senior Project title page and starting your page numbers on the second page. Go here to learn how to access the template: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EKhSEKfss8.
