The Cory Library for Historical Research : a short history, 1931-2003

Berning, J.M. (2004) The Cory Library for Historical Research : a short history, 1931-2003. [s.n.], Grahamstown, South Africa.




Cory Library exists to contain the materials, in any form, which the student of the past needs to pusue his researches. That 'student of the past' may come from a discipline labelled History but he might just as easily not - all disciplines have pasts. George Cory, the 'founder' himself practised history only as a hobby, the collections he built in the pursuit of this hobby shaped the Cory Library. This history of the Cory Library presents an overview of its establishment, resources, staff and users.
