Items in print at the library
- Request item for contact-less pick-up.
- Request a scan of a book chapter or article.
- If you are attending Cornell from a remote location, ask the library if they can purchase an ebook edition. We will if we can!
If the library doesn't have a title you're looking for, or we have it but another patron has borrowed it (it's "checked out'), you can use BorrowDirect to request it from another library in the BorrowDirect system. Turnaround time is generally 3-5 days.
Look for the Request item button in library catalog records.
If the library doesn't have the journal that contains an article you are looking for, you can request a scan of the article via Interlibrary Loan.
From a library database, or from Google Scholar, check to see if we have the article by clicking the "Get it! Cornell" link. If you don't find the article, you can ask for assistance (sometimes the journal will be here, in hardcopy!), or submit a request.
