The Oneida Community and Shaker collections in the George Arents Research Library complement each other as opportunities for research in socio-religious utopianism. The Shakers differ from the Oneida Communists in that the former are a celibate sect. They are similar, however, as examples of 19th century experiments in communal living and industry. A II titles mentioned below are in the Shaker Collection in the Rare Book Department of the Library.
