Bard College Berlin has established a small but highly specialized library since 2002, in which faculty and students alike find material ranging from text books to most recent specialist studies on philosophy, literature and literary criticism, cultural studies, art history and film studies, as well as history, religion, the social and political sciences. Periodicals complement this assortment of monographs, and there is on-campus online access to research databases (JSTOR and EBSCO). The library collection currently includes over 10,000 items (books, CDs, DVDs and magazines). The building features a large reading room, individual working spaces, as well as a lounge and garden.
