Library

Bard College Berlin’s library, housed in a building belonging to the former West German mission to East Germany, is located at Kuckhoffstraße 41. The Bard College Berlin Library provides access to an expanding book and visual media collection based on regular acquisitions made by faculty to support their teaching and research. The collection currently includes about 6000 documents (books, CD, DVDs and magazines).

The library offers the possibility of borrowing course books for all courses, and provides access to a wide range of newspapers and journals and online electronic resources. The building features a large reading room, as well as a lounge and garden.

Students who seek library resources are also encouraged to use the Berlin Staatsbibliothek, which is one of the largest libraries in Germany.
