Your House Librarian
Stevenson Library has partnered with the Bard Houses Faculty in Residence Program to provide a liaison librarian for each of the four houses. House librarians will be available to first-year and transfer students who have questions about research, citing sources, and using library resources and services. They will hold office hours for drop-in questions—often with cookies—and partner with House faculty on other programs throughout the year.
