Plan ahead for Library service interruptions!

Cornell University Library is migrating from its 20+-year-old, end-of-life library management system to a modern, open, and more sustainable solution this summer. This migration necessitates the following temporary pauses to services:

June 7-30

Borrow Direct and Interlibrary Loan of physical materials will be unavailable. However, we may be able to supply a scan of selected pages.

June 16

Last day to make contactless pickup requests for materials you want to use before July 1. Requesting will resume July 1.  Items requested for contactless delivery prior to June 16 will be available for on-site pickup throughout the service pause.

June 21- July 1

Circulation services such as on-site checkouts, new requests for contactless pickup, retrieval from the Annex, and library-to-library delivery will be unavailable. Items that are returned after June 21 will be processed as soon as possible, but may appear checked out until July 16. No fines will be incurred. Items with due dates between June 14 and July 12 will be automatically renewed during the week of June 7 so that nothing needs to be returned during the service outage. The new due dates will be reflected in MyAccount.

If you have extenuating circumstances for borrowing Cornell collection items during this time, please contact the library where the materials you need are housed:
