Borrowing materials from the Library

Alumni interested in borrowing materials from the Library while on campus can request guest borrowing privileges. Privilege cards for contract college libraries are available from Mann 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 services is not available for articles, requests may be sent directly to Cornell ( but this option may be more expensive ($20 minimum).
