Library Facilities

The Cornell Libraries have more than 7.8 million volumes, including extensive holdings in all periods and aspects of Germanic studies. Of special interest are the Bopp Philological Collection, the Zarncke Collection of medieval through eighteenth-century texts (including substantial Luther and Lessing collections), the Witchcraft Collection, the Loewy Masonic Collection, and the Fiske Icelandic Collection.

The library actively collaborates with faculty in German Studies on projects such as the digital collection of video conversations between Heiner Müller and Alexander Kluge and Signale: Modern German Letters, Cultures, and Thought, a print + electronic monographic series published under the joint imprint of Cornell University Library and Cornell University Press.
