From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Cornell Engineering Library serves the students, faculty and staff of the Cornell University College of Engineering, as well as the larger university and scholarly community. It serves the 12 schools of the College of Engineering and their approximately 3000 undergraduates, 1300 graduate students, 230 faculty, staff, and the many research centers thereof. Library liaisons are assigned from the library staff to each department. All engineering disciplines, computer science, and the earth and atmospheric sciences at the undergraduate and graduate level are included.


The library is a component of the Cornell University Library. Although the library is not named after any individual, it is housed within Carpenter Hall, named after Walter S. Carpenter, Jr., who was associated with E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company from 1909 until his retirement as their chairman of the Board in 1962. Carpenter was a member of the Cornell mechanical engineering class of 1910 and also served Cornell as a member of its board of trustees. The library occupies the ground floor and two sub-levels of the building and shares space in Carpenter Hall with the Academic Computing Center (ACCEL).

The library physical collection consists of approximately 300,000 print volumes with another 100,000 volumes and 2 million technical reports held off-site at the Library Annex. The Engineering Library's collections are tailored to research currently underway at Cornell. Subject emphases are re-evaluated when faculty leave and new ones arrive.[1] Primary strengths of the Cornell Engineering Library's collection include computer science, geology and electrical engineering.
