The Adirondack Research Library

The Kelly Adirondack Center and the Adirondack Research Library are open to the public Monday through Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The Adirondack Research Library is a vibrant educational and research unit of the Kelly Adirondack Center which supports Union College’s educational mission.  The ARL actively collects and maintains a collection of archives, manuscripts, and published works documenting the Adirondacks, concentrating on all aspects of the conservation movement of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Research at the library is interdisciplinary in nature. The focus is not only on the importance of ecology, but also social and political issues impacting the Adirondacks.

Finding Aids for many of the collections in the Adirondack Research Library can be found here.
