The Bear Says “Get the Most Out of Your Library!”

Hey students, what can the Library help you with this hybrid fall 2020 semester? A lot! Just take it from the bear—who’s stepping up as the star of our new comic book series, created to fill you in on all the ways you can make the Library work for you. Our first installment comes with tips on getting the most out of the library as many students head off campus to finish their semester at home.  Wishing you all a successful close to a (rather historic!) fall 2020 semester, wherever your perch!


Now Available: Contactless Poster Printing @ Mann

Mann Library is happy to announce that poster printing services are once again available for Cornell faculty, students and staff. Need a color poster printed, in large–up to 5’ x 100’–or smaller–e.g. 8-1/2 x 11″ or 11″ x 17″–dimensions? Our services are available Monday – Friday, 8am to 4pm with a turnaround time of approximately 2 business days. Here are the specific steps needed for getting your poster(s) printed during this year’s hybrid semesters at Cornell:

  • Submit your poster electronically via the Qualtrics form available on the plotter page of the Mann website
  • Our form will ask you to specify our desired paper size, type, quantity, Net ID/email, as well as payment info. (Payment can be via department charge, credit card, or p-card; those paying via credit or p-card will be prompted to call the Mann Help desk to complete the payment).
  • Once payment has been processed, Mann staff will print the poster file submitted, put the the finished print(s) into a plastic sleeve or envelope labelled with your name, and leave it for you to pick up in our contactless pick-up area (Mann 112, aka the mannUfactory makerspace).
  • You will be notified via email when your poster is ready for pick-up. Again, we anticipate poster orders will be ready for pick-up within 2 business days from time of submission.
