Cornell/Ithaca College Borrowing Policies

Cornell Materials For Ithaca College Patrons

Ithaca College students, staff, and faculty are eligible to apply for a local resident library card. This card, which must be renewed annually, allows the holder to borrow circulating materials from any of the Cornell libraries. Borrowed items are subject to these loan periods and permissions.

Applications for the card should be made at the Cornell Library Public Services Office, Olin Library Room 116, Monday through Thursday, 8:30 am to 4:30 pm; Friday 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. At that time, Cornell will require Ithaca College patrons to verify their current status by logging into their IC Library Argos Account. Ithaca College patrons must also present a current government-issued picture identification.

Cardholders from the Ithaca College community should communicate directly with the Cornell University Library about any account issues.

Cardholders can create an online Cornell Library account to verify item due dates and renew Cornell materials online. Overdue notices are sent via email.

Cornell faculty, staff, and students may apply for an Ithaca College Library Affiliate Card. Applications are processed Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm when the Library is open. Applicants will be notified via email when their library account is activated.

Cornell cardholders may borrow any circulating print materials subject to the policy for affiliate borrowers. Overdue fines do not accrue for items with the exception of recalled materials.

Overdue notices are sent to the borrower via email from the Ithaca College Library’s system. Paper receipts are not given at the time the item is checked out unless the user requests one.

Members from the Cornell community should communicate directly with the Ithaca College Library with questions about checked-out items or local account issues.

Items borrowed from Ithaca College may be returned to Olin Library Circulation Desk or the Ithaca College Circulation Desk. Items will not be checked in until they arrive at the owning institution.
