Students can arrange to do guided independent research using the Collections on a wide range of projects. Recent examples have included Hopi kachina dolls, Mississippian pottery and projectile point typology. Non-Cornell groups, including Ithaca and other Tompkins County school groups are also welcome to arrange visits.
Even when not open, we have an exhibit gallery in the first-floor hallway of McGraw Hall where visitors can see selections from our Collections. A larger exhibit space is in the Department seminar room, 215 McGraw, where classes and department colloquia are held. The current exhibits are "Home life in ancient Egypt: Better to dwell in your own small house" in the hallway gallery, and "Small Things Considered" in the 215 gallery.
The Curator since 2005 is Frederic W. Gleach.
