The College's Burke Library offers a strong collection of texts and periodicals on various facets of comparative literature and the literary and cinematic traditions of other cultures. Also housed at the library is the College's Beinecke Lesser Antilles Collection, regarded as the world’s finest collection of 16th- to 19th-century materials on this region of the West Indies, with more than 1,800 print volumes and 1,000 manuscripts.

The Comparative Literature Department has strong interdisciplinary ties to a number of other programs on campus: Asian studies, Russian studies, American studies, women’s studies, Africana studies, Latin American studies and the Diversity and Social Justice Project. All of these provide personal and scholarly resources of interest to many comparative literature students.
