As one of the nation’s leading research universities, Case Western Reserve encourages exploration of unfamiliar subjects, investigation of long-held assumptions and searches for new answers. Our network of libraries supports our community members in their scholarly journeys—offering texts, technology, and ample spaces to study.
Kelvin Smith Library
The center of Case Western Reserve’s network is Kelvin Smith Library. Located at the heart of campus, Kelvin Smith Library is home to resources such as the Freedman Center for Digital Scholarship, Special Collections, and the Kulas Music Collection—not to mention Cramelot Cafe and the Writing Center.
The Judge Ben C. Green Law Library
With more than 700 electronic services and extensive archives of law student and faculty works, the Ben C. Green Law Library has ample resources for nearly any legal inquiry—and it’s a federal depository library, meaning it holds original documents of the U.S. government.
Lillian & Milford Harris Library
All you ever wanted to know about social work and nonprofit education can be found under one roof inside the Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences. Founded in 1916, the Mandel School’s Lillian & Milford Harris Library is the oldest social work library in the United States—and one of only a few to be administered by a social work school.

The Cleveland Health Sciences Library serves the faculty, staff and students at Case Western Reserve University’s dental, medical and nursing schools in their needs for education and research information. The library operates in two locations: the main branch in Allen Memorial Medical Library and the ancillary branch at the Health Education Campus.
