Butler Library is the centerpiece of the Columbia University Libraries, one of the ten largest academic library systems in the nation. Housing close to one-third of the Libraries’ on-site collections, Butler Library includes more than 600,000 rare books and 28 million manuscripts, and the world-famous Oral History Research Office and collection. Several books and screenplays have been written here, including Nobel Prize-winning novelist Orhan Pamuk’s The Black Book and alumnus Dan Futterman’s Oscar-nominated script for the film Capote.
