The Library’s got you covered during Fall Break!

Whether you’re getting out of town and doing some traveling, or enjoying a quiet staycation at home, Mann Library can help you make the most of your fall break!


Heading out of town? Use Access Anywhere to access library resources

When you’re off-campus, you can connect to databases, journals, and e-books that would otherwise be restricted or hidden behind paywalls through Access Anywhere. Just install the Access Anywhere bookmarklet on the web browser of your choice. Next time you hit a restricted website, click the Passkey icon. If the Library has a subscription to the resource you are trying to access, you will be prompted to sign in with your NetID and password.


Enjoy our wide selection of e-books and audiobooks!

Looking forward to some pleasure reading over the long weekend? OverDrive allows current Cornell students, faculty, and staff to check out and download e-books and audiobooks. There are multiple options for accessing e-books and audiobooks via OverDrive:

  • Install the Libby app to download books to a computer, phone, or other device.
  • Read or listen online directly through your computer browser with OverDrive Read.
  • Use your Amazon account and either a Kindle device or app to download Kindle formats.

In addition to Cornell’s OverDrive offerings you can sign up for a Tompkins County Public Library Card to take advantage of their collection. New York State residents may also apply for a New York Public Library Card and/or a Brooklyn Public Library Card to access their OverDrive content as well as other online resources.
