Research Consultations

Request a research consultation for assistance or guidance on any research project, from seminar paper to dissertation.


Do you live off-campus? Do you contemplate needing to use databases while traveling? Are you having difficulty getting access to licensed library resouces? (i.e. databases, e-books, your library account)?

If so, try using PassKey. It's is a "bookmarklet" designed to give Cornell community members access to licensed library resources while they are away from campus.

Passkey Bookmarklet 


Not a library service per se, but free to the Cornell community: cloud storage and collaborative tools via BOX. Use it on the web, as a standalone application, or download an app to your device.
