Requesting Books

If the item you need is checked out by another patron, you can request it via BorrowDirect or Interlibrary Loan.

BorrowDirect Deliveries are made to the library you select and will arrive in 3-5 days.
Loans are for 6 weeks, with the option to renew for another six weeks.

If an item is not available via BorrowDirect, it will be redirected to Interlibrary Loan. Interlibrary Loan may take 7 days or longer.

Requesting Articles...

If you don't find a link to the full text, try the "Get it Cornell" link

If necessary, search the catalog for the journal title (not the article title) -- We may have it in print.

If we don't have the journal, you can place an Interlibrary Loan request.

You will receive an email within 1-3 days with a link to download the article.
