Fine Arts Library

As one of the largest academic art and architecture libraries in the country, the Fine Arts Library's collections cover the visual arts, architecture, city and regional planning, landscape architecture and photography, with an emphasis on the cultures of the West. The Library was founded more than 130 years ago with a gift from Cornell's first president, Andrew Dickson White, who donated his personal architecture collection.

The Library also offers extensive image resources, providing access to major online repositories, such as ArtStor, Archivision and Scholar's Resource. Non-book holdings include videos, DVDs, sound recordings, microforms and computer files.

Holdings: 119,000 print volumes (on-site)

6,639 microforms
