Welcome to the library

Even if you don’t often have the opportunity to visit campus, many of the library’s collections and services are open to you. Through this website, you’ll find access to scholarly journal articles and databases, archives of The Cornell Daily Sun, links to treasures from our special collections, information on exhibits in our libraries, and updates on library events. You can even get assistance with a research project through our Ask a Librarian service. Whether you use these resources to dive deep into a subject that interests you, or just to keep in touch with what we’re doing on the hill, I hope you’ll visit this site frequently and follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

This site also includes information on how you can support the library. Would you like to enhance the library’s collection in a particular discipline or research area? Maybe you’d like to fund a study carrel for a faculty member? Or perhaps you’ll find that our Honor With Books program is the perfect way to celebrate a friend’s birthday or pay tribute to a Cornellian with a bookplate?

Thank you for your interest and your support.
