Accessing CUL Books in NYC

Contact Catherwood Library staff at to request a book to be sent to you in NYC! We can also help you find alternate access to books not available at Cornell University Library.

Tips for Finding Books

  1. Your first search should be a very general keyword search.
  2. Never use a, an, or the when searching for a title.
  3. Always use the long view to review subject headings.
  4. If a record says "networked resource" it is usually available online.
  5. Always pay attention to the call numbers and note whether the material is shelved in the regular, oversized (+), or double oversized (++) sections.
