Welcome to the Cornell Library Blog!

The purpose of the blog is to connect patrons to the vast resources available in the Cornell Library.

Posts often correspond with current events and materials we have at the Library related to those events. Not only do posts highlight specific resources, and faculty work, but they also offer tips as to how to use search terms within JULIEN  to find materials.

We also post the library’s hours, events, acquisitions and news here.

Thanks for visiting!
