"How can someone from outside the Cornell community borrow Cornell University materials?"


Non-Cornell individuals may borrow Cornell materials through Interlibrary Loan. To initiate this process, individuals should contact the reference staff at the academic or local public library with which they are affiliated.

Cornell dissertations may be purchased from University Microfilms International (UMI). Unbound photocopies of older dissertations not available through UMI may be purchased through Cornell's Interlibrary Loan department.
