Getting Started in the Library

If you're new to Ivy Tech Community College or looking for a quick overview of the library, you've found the right place! In addition to the on campus resources, the library is also a collection of online content, tools, and services for you to use on your academic journey. Library resources contain content that isn't easily found on the web, like peer-reviewed articles, evidence-based resources, case studies, and reference works. The Library is staffed by friendly professionals who's main job is to help you when you get stuck in your research or have any questions. 

Where to Start

Because the library can be overwhelming when you first start, let's break it down into three main areas.

Resources can be found in the library's databases and can consist of articles, ebooks, videos, newspapers, and more. There are three main ways to search for resources.

Tools are created by Library staff to help you navigate the library and learn research skills.
