About Us

Students Sitting on the Oval in front of Kelvin Smith Library

Welcome to Kelvin Smith Library at Case Western Reserve University! Our major goal at the Kelvin Smith Library (KSL) has been to create warm, inviting, and effective spaces where our students and faculty can explore rich content and receive an abundance of services that are easy to obtain and use. Behind our facilities and resources is a strong team of talented and knowledgeable people ready to assist and inspire.

KSL is the main library supporting the teaching and research of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, with emphasis given to the College of Arts and Sciences, the Case School of Engineering and the Weatherhead School of Management. The University Archives (located in the Bioenterprise Building) and the Astronomy Library (located in Sears Building) are all part of Kelvin Smith Library.

We look forward to meeting you either virtually or in-person and we welcome your questions, comments or recommendations.
