Subject: Fiske Icelandic Collection


  The Fiske Icelandic Collection, a special collection in the Division of

Rare and Manuscript Collections, Cornell University Library, has for some

ninety years been devoted to the acquisition and cataloguing of monographs

and serials covering the spectrum of Icelandic studies. Today, the

Collection contains virtually comprehensive holdings of publications issued

in Iceland or written in Icelandic before 1930, and has continued a very

active selection policy since then. Ongoing acquisitions include

significant coverage of contemporary women's issues, political science,

history, biography and genealogy, geography, and natural sciences as well

as Old Norse and modern Icelandic language and literature. The Fiske

Collection is one of the three most prominent repositories of Icelandic

materials in the world and the largest outside of Iceland and Denmark.


  To facilitate access to the Collection, an electronic mail address was

established in the spring of 1994. Librarians, researchers and scholars may

send queries relating to the Collection's holdings to FISKEREF at CORNELL.EDU.

The Fiske Collection welcomes reference questions that may be answered with

the Collection's extensive resources, including enquiries of

bibliographical and biographical nature.
