The Levy Economics Institute Library is housed at Blithewood, with the library office and reading room located on the second floor and the majority of the collection shelved on a lower level. The Institute’s Library contains more than 12,000 volumes covering economics, finance, econometrics, and related subjects. It is part of the Bard College library system, which includes more than 400,000 volumes and 14,000 journals covering a wide range of subject areas, available in print or online. Scholars studying at the Institute 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 Levy Economics Institute Library 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. Further research can be done in the more than 140 additional databases available online on the Bard Library website.
