The Albert Kahn Collection, also known as the Kahn Library, was the personal library of architect Albert Kahn. It was a gift of the Kahn Associates and first opened in 1978, and was moved to its permanent location when the library relocated to the Buell Management building in 1982. 

The library was reconstructed as it appeared in the Kahn building, and the materials are cataloged and appear in OCLC WorldCat. Some materials are not yet cataloged, but work continues. 

To find items held in the Kahn library, use the catalog interface and add the expression  AND b8:kahn at the end of any keyword search.
