Kroch Library, Rotunda on top floor
Olin Library, Ithaca, NY 14850, USA
Cornell’s richest historical treasures live underground in Kroch Library, home to the Library’s rare books, manuscripts, photographs, and archives. The collections span from ancient cuneiform tablets, to an original manuscript of the Gettysburg Address written in Abraham Lincoln’s own hand, to comic books and hip hop. Meet at the Rotunda on the top floor of Kroch Library, about 40 minutes after the start of the Olin, Kroch, and Uris tours. About 20 minutes (not offered Saturday, August 19).
