The Personal Librarian program gives library users a personalized and direct link to the Barnard library. Academic departments and students are matched with a librarian who serves as their main point of contact for the library - a go-to person for all things library-related. Each librarian is assigned to one of the floors of the Quad where first year students are housed.

Barnard FLIP Library
Created in collaboration with the Columbia First-Generation Low-Income Partnership (FLIP) and the Barnard Library, the Barnard FLIP Library is a collection on the fourth floor of the Barnard Library that seeks to provide textbooks and other course materials for low-income and/or first-generation students. It was inspired by Columbia’s FLIP Library, which is housed on the 4th floor of Butler Library.
