The Rakow Library's special collections and archives encompass materials ranging from medieval manuscripts about glass to contemporary glass artists’ papers. The special collections and archives include rare books, manuscript collections, design drawings, batch books (glass recipe books), photographs, and ephemera, as well as historic records of The Corning Museum of Glass. Currently, the Library has over 210 manuscript collections documenting glass collecting, the production and industrial design of American glass decorative art objects, individual glass artists’ careers, archaeological excavations, and glass-focused organizations.
