Unfortunately, we are not able to provide BorrowDirect to the Cornell-in-Washington center.

Interlibrary Loan

If you have not yet signed up for Interlibrary Loan, you will be prompted to register. The form requests a 9-digit student ID number. You will need to enter zeros ahead of your ID number to equal 9-digits.

Once this is done, you won't have to do it again. When you are searching a library database, look for the Get it! Cornell link. If we don't have the article, you can place a request via Interlibrary Loan.

Sign up! You'll be glad you did.
