Hybrid library for a hybrid semester: COVID-19 updates »

Contactless Pickup and Curbside Delivery

Contactless pickup is available for items from the circulating collections of all of our libraries except Adelson Library (at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology), as long as the items are not accessible digitally through the Hathi Trust Emergency Temporary Access Service. Place requests in advance by using the ‘request’ button when viewing the item in the library catalog. Library staff will send you an email with pickup Instructions once they prepared your items.

Contactless Pickup

Once you have been notified that your items are ready, you can come pick them up in the mannUfactory (Mann 112). You will find your items on tables individually wrapped or in bags, identified with your name, and sorted alphabetically. Access to contactless pickup is available during our building operating hours:

For the safety of all our users, we ask that while you are on site, you adhere to social distancing guidelines and wear a face covering at all times. Please do not come to campus if you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 14 days, have experienced COVID-like symptoms in the past 14 days, or have had close contact with someone who has tested positive.

Curbside Delivery

If you require an accessibility accommodation, or would prefer to not enter our lobby area, please contact after you receive the notification that your item is available. We provide a curbside delivery service Monday through Friday, 10am to 2pm. After you contact us to request curbside delivery, we will send you instructions on how to make an appointment. 

When you arrive in the Mann parking lot at your designated appointment time, please call the Mann Circulation Desk: (607) 255-3296. A library staff member will bring your item(s) out to your car.
