Information for Visitors

Welcome to the BGC Library.  The primary mission of the BGC Library is to serve current BGC students, faculty, gallery, and staff members.  BGC alums and visiting researchers from outside the institution who need to make use of our unique collection and resources submit research queries and appointment requests to the Library staff.

Research Appointments

Once approved, visiting researchers may visit by appointment, offered between the BGC Library's reference desk hours during our school semester terms or by special arrangement over the summer and during term breaks:

Weekdays 11am–6pm (Fridays 4:30)
Sundays 12pm–5pm

All outside researchers must visit by confirmed appointment.  We are unable to accommodate walk-in visitors or unconfirmed appointment requests.

If you would like to make a research appointment, please contact Reader Services at 212.501.3035 or reference@bgc.bard.edu.
