Along with anticipating a holiday feast and spending time with your family and friends away from the Hilltop, you may also be anticipating a research assignment that is due immediately after the break. If that’s the case, please know that while Cole Library’s doors will be closed until Sunday, its electronic resources will be available to you wherever you choose to access them.
Select the resource you need from the library’s site just as you would ordinarily. Before whisking you off to that tool, however, our portal will ask you to identify yourself. Be prepared to type your last name (with its first letter capitalized) and the number from your Cornell ID (including the three leading zeros). Once you have successfully entered that information, all of Cole Library’s e-resources will be at your disposal for the duration of your browser session.
Should you encounter any difficulties, please let Greg Cotton know. He will either fix the problem, offer an alternative route, or buy you a cup of coffee if he can’t resolve the problem before the break ends.
Finally, from all of us at Cole Library have a happy Thanksgiving. If you are traveling, be sure to travel safely. When you return to the Hilltop, we’ll be here to help you succeed with the final three weeks of Block 4.
Greg Cotton, Interim College Librarian
