Connecting to the Catherwood Library

The staff at ILR's Catherwood Library encourages you to visit with them before you leave campus so you can be trained on how to maintain access to Cornell information sources from overseas.  They can also equip you with a Lexis ID that will work from anywhere in the world.  However, if you are not already trained on Lexis (this takes about 1 hour), you can not be supplied with an ID and Password.

If you are already abroad and would like more information on how to access the Catherwood's resources, please look at the following link in the Library Gateway:

  • Connecting from off-campus - When in another time zone, it helps if you place your computer clock on Ithaca Date & Time (EST). Some databases require time coordination.
  • The Reference Librarians at the Catherwood Library have put together a great list of research resources for students who are currently off-campus.
  • The Catherwood Library offers numerous guides to help you find appropriate information on the workplace.
  • For contact information, visit the Reference Department.
