Annex and Interlibrary Loan (ILL)

Some engineering print items are housed in the off-campus storage facility, the Annex.

The fastest way to request an item is to search for it in the library catalog, then scroll to the top and click on Requests. Follow the instructions. You can request items from the Annex be sent to a campus library or faculty office and delivery is within 24 hours.

Journal articles and microfiche can be scanned and sent to you via document delivery.

If you are a visitor and lack a NetID, you can make a request to have items from the Annex.

ILL requests are for items that Cornell does not own or have access to.  Place a request to have print items sent to your home library or have items scanned and sent to you electronically.  Most items are delivered within 2 weeks though a request may take longer. There is no cost to the Cornell community for this service.
