ImageOlin & Uris Libraries

The Olin and Uris Libraries collection supports research and instruction at Cornell, principally in the humanities and social sciences; the collection also includes select engineering and physical sciences materials.

Distributed across the two adjacent libraries, holdings of print, media and electronic resources are managed by two-dozen bibliographers and subject specialists who select materials for the Olin and Uris library stacks, for access over computer networks, and for the Library Annex, located just off central campus. The collection reflects the university curriculum, areas of faculty research, and the library’s historical strengths. Among especially rich holdings are those of: the central Andean countries; classics; government; history of science; Icelandic studies; linguistics; literary and cultural studies; philosophy, criticism and theory; and United States history.

Special collections include the New & Noteworthy, Maps and Geospatial Information, Cornelliana, and Media (DVD, sound recording, microform, and newspaper) collections.

The Carl A. Kroch Library, entered through Olin Library, is home to the Asia Collections and the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections.
