Cornell has shifted to a remote teaching format for the Spring 2020 term. During this time, Cornell Library will continue to offer a wide range of digital resources to provide academic support to students, faculty, and staff.
Be assured that, although our physical locations have ceased operations until further notice, Library services continue to be available online. Library staff look forward to working with you remotely to support your research, teaching, and learning.
The goal of this guide is to maximize the electronic accessibility of our resources and provide virtual research and digital learning support.
Cornell IT Tools for Working Remotely
You may need to be able to conduct your work from remote locations. There are a number of resources available from Cornell IT services that can help with that.
The Center for Teaching Innovation also has a number of resources that can prepare you for alternative course delivery during COVID-19 and are having online drop in sessions for remote teaching questions from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Librarians will also be available to answer questions.
