CCS Bard Library’s catalog was designed as a starting point for research with CCS collections in an art-specific context. You will find materials held by the CCS Bard Library, records for CCS Bard archival collections and links to their respective finding aids, as well as access to a variety of material available through Bard College’s subscription databases focused on coverage of contemporary arts and culture.
For more information about resources in the larger Bard College system, see “Bard College Libraries” below or search the Bard Libraries catalog or the A-Z Databases for a full list of electronic resources available at Bard.
Resource Type is a broad classification of the resource being described (book, periodical, video/DVD, etc.). Material type is a more specific designation of the resource type. For example, an artists’ book would be a resource type “book” and would also have a material type “artists’ book.”
Material types are a new descriptive facet in our cataloging, so you can expect to see this metadata enriched moving forward.
