Use the Library

Requesting Items  

Items - whether from the Cornell Library or through Borrow Direct - can be requested through the library's website; detailed instructions on how to complete this request can be found on our library-to-library delivery page.  Once submitted, items will be processed and sent to Geneva.  To ensure patron privacy, all items will be wrapped then labeled with patron name and office address for delivery in department mailboxes.  

Interlibrary loan requests will be mailed directly to the patron via UPS along with a prepaid return shipping label.  Articles are handled through the library's Document Delivery service and will be scanned and sent via email as a PDF.

Material Returns

To return items, faculty and staff can place up to 3 items in campus mail envelopes addressed to Mann Library which will be processed upon receipt.  If more than 3 items are being returned or items are oversized and will not fit in campus envelopes, please return items in the book drop located outside the General Services Building  To return ILL items with a UPS return label, simply place in your department's outgoing mailbox.  

Please note: items which have been returned through Geneva campus mail or the book drop will not be removed from patron accounts until they have been received and processed at Mann Library which could take up to one business day from the time of return.
