Welcome to the Bard College Berlin Library Catalog

Bard College Berlin’s library, housed in a building belonging to the former West German mission to East Germany, is located at Kuckhoffstraße 41.

Bard College Berlin has established a small but highly specialized library since 2002, in which faculty and students alike find material ranging from textbooks to most recent specialist studies on philosophy, literature and literary criticism, cultural studies, art history and film studies, as well as history, religion, sociology, economics, and political science. Periodicals complement this assortment of monographs, and there is on-campus online access to research databases (JSTOR and EBSCO). The library collection currently includes over 10,000 items (books, CDs, DVDs and magazines).

Search digital libraries with academic content, primary sources, films, and documentaries (on-campus access):  JSTOR and EBSCO (links on the left-hand menu). For a diverse range of resources, from open-access directories, to recommendations for bookshops and libraries in Berlin, as well as a careful selection of digital tools, see the Further Resources page.
