Greetings Weill Cornell faculty, staff and students visiting Ithaca or Geneva! The staff and resources of all the Cornell University libraries are available to you to support your research, learning and practice. There are 20 Cornell libraries associated with this campus, including Geneva. Location information is available here.
Accessing Electronic Resources
The electronic collections available to the Cornell community vary among campuses and branches. While using a computer connected the Cornell University (Ithaca) campus network such as those inside the various libraries at any public workstation, you will be able to access all resources licensed for all Cornell campuses. However, electronic resources subscribed for only for the Weill Cornell Medicine campuses are not accessible directly on the Cornell University (Ithaca) campus network due to licensing restrictions. WCM users must access these electronic resources from the library’s website via OneSearch or e-Resources, which will require authentication through EZproxy.
Searching the Online Catalog
Borrowing Library MaterialsWeill Cornell faculty, staff and students can register to borrow materials in-person from the Cornell University libraries by presenting a WCMC ID. The loan period is generally six months. If necessary, items borrowed from Ithaca may be returned at the Weill Cornell Medical Library. Please advise library staff if you are returning item(s) from a different library.
Requesting Interlibrary Loan/Document DeliveryWeill Cornell faculty, staff and students should use the TripSaver to request items not held by the Weill Cornell Medical Library. This includes items at Cornell libraries in Ithaca/Geneva unless you wish to retrieve the material in person.
Weill Cornell Medical Library materials that are not accessible electronically may be requested at no charge when you are off-campus. When completing your TripSaver request please select "No, I do not want to use the TripSaver service", and indicate in the comments field the dates that you are off-campus and your delivery information. Physical items will be available for pickup at the Medical Library unless you arrange to have the book sent to another Cornell University library.
