The Cornell University Library, the Tompkins County Public Library, and a host of public and high school libraries from communities across New York State are pleased to support and assist all participants in the 2006 New Student Reading Project.
Libraries provide access to resources—both digital and print, access to services designed to deliver the information you need, and access to knowledgeable staff. For all of the great advances in digital technology, librarians are still the ultimate search engines. Let them help you help yourself to a world of information.
If you have any questions about the New Student Reading Project, F. Scott Fitzgerald, his novel, The Great Gatsby, or other related topics, librarians can help. Use the links below to contact us.
To our new students, please know that you are now affiliated with one of the best academic research libraries in the world. This affiliation provides access to the information and resources that are essential to any pursuit of knowledge. You are not just reading a book, you are starting your academic and Cornell careers.
