The principal repository of rare books, manuscripts and archival materials at Cornell University, the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections houses 430,000 printed volumes and more than 80 million manuscripts. Notable holdings include the papers and archival materials of James Joyce, E.B. White, Vladimir Nabokov, William Wordsworth, A.R. Ammons, and George Bernard Shaw. The library also serves as a resource center for the study of book history, offering both a semester course in the Cornell English Department and a weeklong summer course for Cornell Adult University.
