Welcome to Olin & Uris Libraries: Cornell doesn't have it?

Library Orientation Guide

If Cornell doesn't have it...

If a book you need isn't available at Cornell, you may request the item via BorrowDirect. Turnaround time is 3-5 days.

If the book isn't available via BorrowDirect, try Interlibrary Loan. The Interlibrary Loan turnaround time for books will vary. It depends on how widely available the book is and how quickly the lending library can fill our request.

If an article you need is from a journal we don't own, request the article via Interlibrary Loan. The article will be delivered to your email in 1-3 days.

Articles arrive in 1-3 days!
