The Smith-Kettlewell Library consists of two sections, housed in separate adjacent rooms: One each for books and scientific journals. Both rooms are well lit and can also be used for small meetings in peace and behind closed doors.

Book Library (Room 222)

The book library contains about 1500 books, with an additional 100-200 in office-specific or digital collections. Materials span a wide range of subject matters from Ophthalmology to Mathematics, and from Computers to Strabismus. Our collection also contains several “gems” from the 19th century in several languages, as well as various mementoes of Smith-Kettlewell's history and recognition over the years.

The main print book collection and some digital resources are searchable in our new Online Catalog:

Support the SKERI Library

The Smith-Kettlewell Library has been enriched through generous donations of books and journals from prominent ophthalmologists and researchers. Donating funds will help us keep up with the ever-increasing costs of journal subscriptions and prospectively defray publishing costs!
