FAQS: Faculty FAQs

As our popular collection continues to shrink due to full-text online access becoming available, the Library does not actually have a supply of issues ready to be discarded at any one time. We also bind some of the popular weekly periodicals, as their visual content is important for research in some courses. Check with the campus mail room for surplus issues that have not been picked up. Also, check with the Tompkins County Public Library Friends group for remainders of magazines they could not sell. Here is their website for the booksale : Contact page
Instructions can be found here. Please contact Kris Shanton, Music Librarian, for information on username/password.
Please fill out a reserve form. Library staff will check to see which items it has licensed access to and can add links to content, when available, in your Sakai course. For book chapters, the library can scan up to 10% and place in your Sakai course. For requests over 10%, please contact reserve@ithaca.edu for additional options.
