Graduate students, new and returning, are invited to come and enjoy free food, drink and door prizes while learning about the Cornell Library’s services and resources for grads. GIS, data and citation management, statistics, lit reviews, visual resources, archival research and more: meet the staff and ask them questions, and bring a friend!
The event takes place Tuesday September 10th, from 4:30 to 6 pm, in Olin Library’s Amit Bhatia (’01) Libe Cafe.
Just inside the entrance to Uris Library, you’ll find 1,000 origami cranes floating above you. Inspired by the rich cultural heritage of the Japanese, Siege of Cranes is an installation whose purpose and message—much like the folds of the origami that created it—is layered and complex. Composed of one thousand cranes and over five hundred individual LED lights, the installation is the preamble to the exhibition When the Emperor was Divine—honoring Julie Otsuka’s eponymous novel.
Both the exhibition and installation were conceptualized and designed by Alberto Embriz-Salgado ’14, Student Designer-In-Residence for Olin and Uris Libraries, and executed in collaboration with library staff members.
Learn how to use Cornell’s library, start searches, and improve your research skills. Please attend this workshop prior to attending an Introduction to Library Research session. Session lasts one hour and are held in Olin Library Room 106G (on the main floor).

Contribute to the Uris exhibition celebrating the first year reading project and learn the art of origami. You are invited to two crane-folding sessions:
- Tuesday, Aug. 13, 3-4 pm. Olin 106g
- Friday, Aug. 16, 10-11 am. Olin 106g
We’ll supply instructions, folding paper & refreshments. If you can’t make either time, but would like to participate we’ll have instructions and paper at the reference and circulation desks in Olin and Uris. Because of fire codes and other installation requirements, we are using a specific size and type of paper.
This part of the exhibit will be a mobile crane installation in the lobby of Uris that our student designer, Alberto Embriz-Salgado, has conceptualized. We are encouraging staff and patrons to make it a collective effort by joining in folding origami cranes.
We hope you can make it!
