About the Cornish Studies Library

The Cornish Studies Library (CSL) specialises in helping those who are researching Cornwall or Cornish people. The wide ranging collections cover all subjects, from mining to modern art, from poetry to prehistory, and family history to farming. No membership is required and our service is free.

Please note, the Cornish Studies Library is now permanently closed to enable staff to prepare for the move to Kresen Kernow, which opens in 2019. You can read more about the Kresen Kernow project here or please contact us for more information.
