“Book & Paper Conservation at Cornell” Exhibit Tour

 

 

 

 

Please join us July 25th at 10 am for a tour of the “Book & Paper Conservation at Cornell” exhibit currently on display on the Gallery Level in Uris Library. The exhibit showcases both bookbinding techniques and materials, and the development of hand papermaking, two craft traditions that greatly inform and direct conservation treatment practices.

Highlighting the work of the Cornell University Library Conservation Laboratory, the exhibition demonstrates a variety of bookbinding techniques and materials, papermaking and specialty papers used in library conservation, and paper and photograph conservation.

Locating Items Not Held at Cornell in New Library Website

The single search box on the new Cornell Library website searches Cornell holdings, sorting the results into different formats.

For example: I am looking for the script of the 2000 film, Cast Away.

single_search

The results below show that Cornell does not have the script.  There is an option on the left side of the results page that will allow you to search “Libraries Worldwide”.  Click on images to enlarge.

Libraries_Worldwide

Once you click on that link, you will need to change the “sort by” (see picture below) from “Library and Relevance”

Library_and_relevance

to “Relevance”. Once you find the item you are looking for, in this case below #1, click on the title to request from Borrow Direct.

Relevance

If you have any issues with locating or requesting an item, Ask a Librarian.

Welcome to Borrow Direct, Johns Hopkins University

Last week, Johns Hopkins started circulating items within the Borrow Direct system.

Borrow Direct  enables Cornell faculty, staff and students to search the combined library catalogs of Brown, University of Chicago, Columbia, Dartmouth, Johns Hopkins, MIT, University of Pennsylvania, Princeton and Yale, a collection of over 40 million volumes, and directly request expedited delivery of circulating items that are not available at Cornell.  Most items are delivered within 4 business days of the request.

 

“A New Look for the Library Website and Catalog” via EnglishLit @ CUL Blog

On July 1st the Library went live with the redesigned interface that was previewed last semester as a beta site. All the components of the previous web site are still there — the CUL Catalog (both Classic and a newly revamped version with Classic at its core); Databases; Articles, E-books; E-Journals; Images; and WorldCat Local — but the pathways to them look somewhat different.
