Delivery of Books to Elmira Center

We provide delivery service of books to the Elmira Academic and Workforce Development Center (Welcome Desk) in Elmira. These include items in our collection and items we borrow from other libraries for you.

Create ILLiad account

In order to request an item, you need to create an ILLiad Account  by going to First Time User Registration if you have not already created one.

Choose your delivery location when you fill out this form. The two locations that books are delivered to are the SUNY CCC Library on Spencer Hill or the Elmira Academic and Workforce Development Center in Elmira.

Once your delivery location has been selected, all items you request will be delivered to this location only. If you need to change locations in the future, use the Change User Information link within your ILLiad account.

Request a Book

Books can be requested from the SUNY CCC library or from Interlibrary Loan.  The procedure is the same for either option.

  • Start your search in WorldCat.
  • Enter your search terms.
  • Locate book and click on the title of book.
  • Click on the "Request from another library" link
  • Log into your ILLiad account (or Create one if you have not done so)
  • Submit your request.
  • We will notify you when the book is delivered to the Elmira Center.
  • You will need your SUNY CCC ID Card to pick up your items.

Course Reserve Material @ Elmira Center

Print materials may be placed on Reserve for classes at the Elmira Center. Instructors should contact the Library for more information.

Library Instruction @ Elmira Center

Do you want your students to learn more about library resources and research techniques? A librarian will be happy to meet with your class! We can provide basic library skills instruction, or customize our presentation to fit a specific assignment. Instruction sessions typically take place in the Library presentation room (LIB009), but we can also come to you. Please schedule library instruction sessions as far in advance as possible, and if you want an assignment-specific presentation, provide us with a copy of the assignment.

Contact us at (607) 962-9251 or (subject line: Library Instruction) for further assistance.
