Barnard College Greek Games, 1965
***IMPORTANT UPDATE REGARDING ACCESS TO OUR COLLECTIONS DURING OUR MOVE***
Barnard College is planning for the construction of a new library and classroom building on the same footprint of the current library building. In order to prepare for this construction, the Archives will be shutting down to all researchers from June 2015 through September 2015. Starting June 1, we will not be able to answer researcher requests or welcome researchers to the Archives as we ready our collections to be moved to off-site, retrievable storage for the duration of construction. We hope to reopen to research inquiries at some point in September 2015, once we have figured out protocols for retrieving materials from off-site storage.
We, the archivists, will stay in our current office, in 019 Lehman Hall, until January 2016, when we are slated to move to temporary offices in Barnard Hall, where we will remain for the duration of the construction--which is scheduled to be finished at some point in 2018. While we are in our temporary space, all requests will need to be made in advance as our materials will be stored off-site. We will post policies for retrieval and requests when they are available.
We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause and appreciate your patience and understanding as we move our collections and ourselves. These timelines may change, so please contact us before planning a trip to the Archives and Special Collections. We also recommend using our Digital Collections site to access scanned copies of the yearbook, the Barnard Bulletin, and a selection of photographs.
