Welcome back Weill Cornell alumni!
The staff and resources of the Samuel J. Wood library at Weill Cornell Medicine are available to you to support your research, learning and practice.
Alumni of Weill Cornell Medical College (WCMC) and the Graduate School of Medical Sciences (WCGSMS) are eligible for borrowing privileges at the Samuel J. Wood library.
Alumni of the Medical College must present their alumni card at the library's SmartDesk to register for borrowing privileges. Alumni cards are available through the Office of Alumni Relations: (646) 962-9560. Once you have completed the registration process, your alumni card will be barcoded and will serve as a library card as well. It must be presented to library staff each time you enter the library and at the library's SmartDesk each time you wish to borrow library material. Please have it with you whenever you come.
Alumni of the Weill Cornell Graduate School must present a letter of verification from the Office of Alumni Relations (email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call: 646-962-9456) to the staff at the library's SmartDesk. A separate library card will be issued to eligible alumni at that time. This card must then be presented to library staff each time you enter the library, and at the library's SmartDesk each time you wish to borrow library material. Please bring the card when you visit the library.
Alumni of the Medical College and Graduate School are also able to utilize the historic collections held in the Medical Center Archives, dating back to 1771. Visit https://library.weill.cornell.edu/archives to learn more about the collections and how to use them for your research.
Please note that alumni privileges do not include Interlibrary Services, TripSaver Requests, off-site access, or access to any of our affiliated institutions.
