As a member of the Cornell community, you have certain library privileges at numerous major universities and museums. Many of these institutions have a law library, which is available for your use. This is made possible by our membership in OCLC's SHARES program. Borrowing privileges are not included with this arrangement.
The reciprocal agreements with the libraries listed below are limited to facility access:
NYU’s Law Library
Columbia’s Arthur W. Diamond Law Library
New York Public Library and its branches.
Cornell’s Weill Medical Library
For a list of more libraries (NYC and nation-wide) with whom Cornell University Library has reciprocal agreements, consult the SHARES Partner Contacts list.
When planning your visit, we recommend contacting the library you'll be visiting in advance to ascertain any possible restricted access periods. Also be sure to bring your Cornell ID. Internet access: NYU, Columbia, and Cornell Weill support internet access for visitors via Eduroam, which should be set up on your personal device before visiting a partner library.
Please be advised that access to these libraries may be limited to current faculty and students of Cornell Law School. If you are not a current student or faculty member of Cornell Law School and wish to access the above libraries, please contact the library you wish to visit for further information.
