We apologize for the inconvenience.

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.
