MEDVL 1101: Details in Dress: Reading Clothing in Medieval Literature (Spring 2024)

a guide to library research


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.

Please note: BorrowDirect delivery may take somewhat longer because of the need to quarantine materials and because all of our BorrowDirect partners are not yet open.

Look for the Request item button in library catalog records.



Interlibrary Loan

If the library doesn't have the journal that contains an article you are looking for, or if the library only owns the print journal, 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.
