The John Henrik Clarke Africana Library, also known as the Africana Library, provides a special collection focusing on the history and culture of people of Africana ancestry. There are more than 22,000 volumes in the collection. The library supports the curriculum of Cornell University's Africana Studies & Research Center and the Cornell community at large. Across Cornell, the library serves as a bibliographic reference and referral center by providing access to African, African Americans and Caribbean resources available either in the Cornell University Library or collections at other institutions.
"Our children, now both Cornell graduates (grad and undergrad) have always compared all other universities by the library, access to the library and availability of resources. The Africana Studies Library is a jewel. I chose it as the first library on campus to acquaint our children because of its size, helpful staff and great collection. We always seemed to find something there to look at; later as they needed more resources, we occasionally found them there, too. So in short, this is a long-overdue thank you for keeping such a jewel so available, open and welcoming to our community," Catheryn MS’81 PhD’87.
