Borrowing for FLCC

Students, faculty, and staff from Finger Lakes Community College can borrow print materials from Cornell University Library using Interlibrary Loan (ILL). Alternatively, they can request that the library scan book chapters or articles and send these via Document Delivery. See the boxes below for more details.

Enology & Viticulture at Charles J. Meder Library

In addition to the resources available at Cornell University Library, FLCC patrons should be sure to check out the resources available at the Charles J. Meder Library.

Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

At this time, Interlibrary Loan (ILL) is the only option available to FLCC borrowers for requesting physical print items from Cornell University Library. ILL requests can be placed directly through FLCC's Charles J. Meder Library, or through another local library (public or academic) with which the borrower has a current, direct affiliation. 

Request a Scan

ScanIt is a service for Cornell students, faculty and staff that provides electronic scans of articles and book chapters from material held by Cornell University Library. The Ithaca campus libraries provide this service to all Cornell faculty, students, and staff regardless of location.

FLCC borrowers can also request scans of articles from print journals or of book chapters (up to 10% of the book) free of cost. All they need to do as non-Cornell borrowers is submit a one-time registration and indicate their affiliation with FLCC. This way Cornell University Library will know not to charge FLCC borrowers for their request. The scanned article or chapter will be uploaded to a secure server and then FLCC borrowers will receive a link via email to access the document(s).

Most ScanIt requests are available in about 48 hours; however, we cannot guarantee a 48 hour turnaround time.
