    Access and Privileges - COVID Information

    Library staff members are available remotely to all affiliated users during the regular hours listed below. Please contact us via chat (available on this page), email (circulationdesk@med.cornell.edu) or by phone (646-962-2570).

    The Library's physical space is now open on a limited basis to WCM staff and students and NYP/WCM staff, but only if they have their ID with them and that ID card automatically opens the library gates. This policy allows for the contact tracing required by New York State and  provides "no touch" entrance. The hours of on-site operation will be Monday- Friday, 8am - 8pm only, until further notice.

    All other affiliated patrons will not be allowed to enter at this time. 

    The 24-hour space will remain closed overnight until further notice.

    You must present a valid ID when entering the library.
