Libraries

Yale University Library is comprised of collections, spaces, technology, and people. The collections contain fifteen million print and electronic volumes in more than a dozen libraries and locations, including Sterling Memorial Library, Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and the Anne T. and Robert M. Bass Library. Yale Library’s resources also include more than a billion licensed e-resources and special collections that represent the diversity of the human experience in forms ranging from ancient papyri to early printed books, rare film and music recordings, and a growing body of born-digital materials. More than five hundred staff members facilitate teaching, research, and practice, offering deep subject-area knowledge as well as expertise in digital humanities, geographic information systems, and the use and management of research data. Yale Library’s preservation and conservation specialists develop and apply leading-edge technology to maintain collections, providing critical support for increased access to collections, an expanding exhibition program, and Yale’s emphasis on teaching with primary sources.
