Cornell University Library is pleased to provide Cornell alumni with several library services for their personal use. If you have questions about Alumni access to these resources, please contact Meghan Sitar at 607-255-3680 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
As a Cornell alumnus, you may access these resources from the links above using your Cornell NetID. If you do not have a NetID, the Alumni Affairs Web site has instructions for requesting one.
Unfortunately, contracts we sign with vendors prohibit us from providing alumni access to other licensed library resources. Visit your local public library to speak to a reference librarian who can explain access options in your region/state.
Access to RefWorks
RefWorks is a Web-based program that allows you to organize information—to collect, manage, and organize bibliographic citations by interfacing with databases. RefWorks also interfaces directly with Microsoft Word, making it easy to import citations and incorporate them into your writing as properly formatted footnotes or parenthetical citations according to the style of your choice.
To set up an account, go to Cornell’s RefWorks page and click "Sign up for an Individual Account." You must use your Cornell email address to set up the account. Avoid using Chrome. You will need to use the Cornell group institutional code:
If you have problems setting up your account, or using RefWorks, send us your citation management question.
