Interlibrary Loan, Article Orders, and Referrals

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, in these situations:

  1. The item is not available at the Consortium libraries (NYU and the New School).
  2. The item is not readily available at a public library that is conveniently located for you.
  3. You would rather wait for the result of this process than use a METRO referral card to gain access to a library in New York City

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). For some of these we can provide referrals that allow you to 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.
