Alumni Library Privileges

We are pleased to provide our IWU alumni with a variety of library services.  Alumni of IWU may request an IWU library courtesy card that allows for borrowing privileges (see below for loan periods,) connection to the internet while visiting our campus, and receive professional assistance from our subject liaison librarians.  To take advantage of these services, please stop at our library circulation desk.

Due to licensing restrictions, alumni may not access our licensed electronic databases from off campus.  There are a growing number of openly accessible scholarly resources that are available to researchers, and library staff will be glad to assist our alumni in their discovery and use.

Interlibrary loan privileges are only available to current IWU students, faculty, and staff. This service can be provided by your local public library.
