Ornithology Collections in the Libraries at Cornell University


Cataloging Information

Since the early 1970s, all bibliographic records for titles cataloged at Cornell have been computer-generated. Today, all of Cornell's records of ornithological books and monographs, with bibliographic and location information for each title, are accessible in the national library databases (RLIN and OCLC) and through the Cornell University Library Online Catalog.

Titles of ornithological journals currently received at Cornell also appear in the RLIN and OCLC databases, with summary holdings noted. Some journals that are no longer published, and a number of local newsletters and publications of bird clubs received by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, are not recorded on those databases as yet. Any record that appears in RLIN or OCLC also appears in the Cornell University Library Online Catalog.

The Beautiful Birds Web site also includes a searchable database with bibliographic records for all material in the Hill Ornithology Collection housed in Kroch Library.
