Faculty may use the following steps to place a book request:

  1. Find the book in the CUL library catalog and select the red “Request Item” button. You will be prompted to log in before reaching this screen.
  2. In the drop down menu, select your desired pickup location, then hit the red “Submit delivery request” button. To request pickup at the Law School, select “Law Library – Law Faculty, Staff, and Students Only”.
  3. You may also email the title, author, edition, and call number of the book to lawcirc@cornell.edu. If you do not know the book details, please email your library liaison if you have one, or lawlib@cornell.edu if you do not have one.
  4. You will receive an email from the Law Library when your request is ready for pickup. Requested books will be delivered to your campus mailbox. If you do not have a campus mailbox, your items will be delivered to the Law Library contactless pickup location on the Ground Floor near the Jane Foster elevators. 
  5. If you are unable to get to Cornell to pick up your book, we will arrange to mail the book to you. Please email your library liaison or lawlib@cornell.edu if you do not have one.
