Interlibrary Loan and Article Ordering
If an item is unavailable at Cooper or within the Consortium, we can usually locate another copy for you, in New York City and beyond. We use the OCLC WorldCat database to locate items for you.
The Library will provide interlibrary loan and article ordering services to current Cooper Union students, staff, faculty, and administration, under these conditions:
Note: The Cooper Union Library will pay the first $15 for each request. We ask you to indicate whether or not you are willing to pay the cost above $15 per item. It is rare that an additional charge is necessary.
Fill out the Google Form and we will request it for you.
We use electronic methods of requesting and delivery to speed up turnaround time, when possible.
DO NOT use NYU's electronic interlibrary loan form. They will not fulfill the request.
The Library is also a member of the Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO), and can provide referrals to most private academic libraries in the New York City area. You can visit the other library to use the item, but not to borrow it. This may be preferable if you need to see the item quickly.
