In addition to restored physical access, the library continues to provide several services to support both local and remote patrons, including scanning, contactless pickup, ordering ebooks, and mailing books to Cornell users who are unable to come to campus. 

Items that are in copyright are still available for full-text search in the HathiTrust Digital Library, and patrons continue to have full access to HathiTrust items in the public domain or through Creative Commons licensing. These titles are marked “Full view” in HathiTrust's catalog. Because Cornell is a HathiTrust member, Cornell students, faculty, and staff may log in to HathiTrust using the institutional login and password and download full PDFs of those items.
