CCS Bard Library List of Digital Resources (COVID-19)
We developed this list of subscription and open-access digital resources for art research in response to the closure of our physical space and the need for remote access during the COVID-19 pandemic. For additional help navigating these resources, or for any trouble accessing subscription resources, please do not hesitate to reach out to CCS Bard library staff at email@example.com for assistance. We’re here to help!
CCS Bard Resources
Bard e-books: now searchable via the CCS Bard Catalog. To isolate this material, you can do an advanced search and select “E-books” in the Resource Type facet then pair with additional search terms. You can also simply hit “Enter” to browse the material. Don’t forget to use quotation marks around your search terms to reduce false hits.
