Alumni Ask a Librarian feature
Borrowing materials from the Library
Printed volumes are only lent through library networks, not to individuals, so alumni who are not on campus may request interlibrary services through a local library with which they have a current, direct affiliation. If a local public library is not able to borrow the books needed, a county or regional library may be helpful.
Digital scans of book chapters or journal articles may also be requested through interlibrary services at a local library. If this service is not available for articles, requests may be sent directly to Cornell (https://cornell.hosts.atlas-sys.com/nonetid/lending/lendingLogon.html) but this option may be more expensive ($20 minimum).
