Levy Economics Institute ResourcesThe Levy Economics Institute Library contains more than 12,000 volumes covering economics, finance, econometrics, and related subjects. Students also have access, through the Levy Library, to the Connect New York system of interlibrary loans, which makes hundreds of thousands of additional books in academic libraries across New York State automatically available for borrowing. The library also provides access to published articles in virtually every major economic journal through the EconLit, Business Source Premier, and Business and Economics Theory Collection databases. Further coverage of working papers, books, position papers, and articles is provided through subscriptions to the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Social Science Research Network.
Additional statistical resources provided by the Levy Economics Institute Library include LexisNexis, the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research, and Historical Statistics of the United States.
Bard College ResourcesStudents also have access to Bard’s College library complex. The resources of the library and the satellite libraries—the Levy Institute’s library and the Center for Curatorial Studies on the Annandale campus, and in the Bard Graduate Center in New York City—include more than 400,000 volumes and 14,000 journals available in print or online. In addition, online databases central to all the disciplines in Bard's curriculum provide access to indexes and abstracts. Users may consult these and other online resources from the library's more than 50 computer stations, any public lab, most dormitory rooms, and from off campus anywhere in the world.
Further research can be done in the more than 140 additional databases available online on the Bard Library website.
