Housed in the new Imogene Powers Johnson Center for Birds and Biodiversity, the Adelson Library officially opened in May 2004. Cornell's 20th library contains a rich array of historical and contemporary ornithological materials, including an extensive collection of monographs and journals. The library is named in honor of university trustee Ellen G. Adelson '58, in recognition of her gift to underwrite its construction.
