About Us

Welcome to Mann Library


I am pleased to welcome you to the new and improved Mann Library website. The staff at Mann work hard to make sure we offer you a highly effective learning and research experience, whether you are using our collections, spaces, technologies, or services. Our new website will help guide you to the many ways Mann Library can help you do your work!

New at Mann for Fall 2016 is our MannYoufacture makerspace. Cornell University Library and Academic Technologies are debuting a makerspace in the Mann 112 computing lab right off the lobby. This new facility will be a creative, DIY space where people can gather to create, invent, and learn. Watch as the facility evolves over the course of the year and be sure to join us at Tinker Thursday (4-6 pm) or Fabrication Friday (noon-1pm) events.

If you are looking for help with a research paper, your thesis, or any other work requiring information resources, you can now book a consultation with a librarian directly from our website. Check out our experts – they are here to help!

The overarching theme for our public programs this year is exploration! With a number of exhibits as well as a couple of Chats in the Stacks book talks focused on scientific expeditions and fieldwork--including the work leading to the creation of the beautiful glass Blaschka sculptures--we have a wonderful program lined up for the year.

I hope you take the opportunity to explore Mann Library; discover new things, develop new ideas, and bring learning to life. Whether you come to us in person in our beautiful facility overlooking Beebe Lake, or online through our website, we hope you find the perfect way to connect to all this library has to offer.

And if you have suggestions for us, please be sure to get in touch. We welcome your questions and your feedback.

Best wishes for a productive academic year,
