Cookbooks at SU Libraries


Where to find them

The cookbook collection currently resides in two physical locations while we await renovations to the Carnegie Library books stacks. Some can be browsed in Bird Library, 4th floor near the LP's and others need to be requested from long-term storage. We also have many eBook cookbooks available online. One can virtually browse our cookbooks and cooking collections in our online catalog/Summon or, if one is seeking a specific title, ask for help from friendly library staff.
