To find books outside Cornell, use BorrowDirect or OCLC WorldCat.

Bonus: you can order the book you want directly from BorrowDirect (provided it is not available to borrow at Cornell). Your book will be delivered to the library you choose at Cornell in four business days or less. Check at a reference desk for further information and assistance.
OCLC WorldCat is the combined online catalogs of tens of thousands of libraries around the world. You can request books in WorldCat that are not available through either Cornell or BorrowDirect by using our free interlibrary loan service.
