The Library’s mission is to be an active partner in the intellectual work of Bard's students, faculty, and staff. We strive to develop collections, services, and partnerships that help all users become more resourceful, more independent and more original scholars. We take a campus leadership role in thoughtfully applying emerging media to the task of turning information into knowledge.

We actively promote a variety of resource sharing relationships (ConnectNY, the Oberlin Group Libraries and Southeastern New York Library Resources Council) with regional and national partners designed to bring considerably expanded collections of books, journals and digital resources to the campus community.
Through the College Archives and Special Collections we continue to collect and create easy and comprehensive access to a variety of historical documents, images, and recordings that tell the story of the College, and to actively promote their use as teaching and learning resources.
