Cornell Librarians online:

After hours, non-Cornell librarians, through a cooperative arrangement, are online to provide basic help, or when Cornell librarians are busy helping other patrons. Your question may be referred back to Cornell librarians for follow-up by email or phone.

What is Passkey?

Passkey is a bookmarklet (Firefox and IE) that lets you quickly authenticate as a CU person, when you're off-campus. This allows you to access databases.

In firefox, drag the icon to your bookmarks toolbar or right click and bookmark this location. Control-click (mac users)

In Internet Explorer, right-click the icon, add to favorites

The next time you're off-campus and a publisher asks you to log-in, click the Passkey.  You'll be prompted for your CU netid, and that's it! 

Details are at CUL Labs (Cool Tools)


Ask your questions in person, by phone, by e-mail, IM or chat.
