The library offers instruction, upon request, to faculty, staff, and students. Instruction may include a general introduction to the campus library as well as instruction in the use of specific resources. Two of our main resources, IvyCat and Discover, have been through major changes recently, and they now have completely new interfaces. A new Ivy Tech Library phone app will be available soon too. Students and faculty may have questions about using these updated resources, and we will be happy to show you how! Use this form to request an instruction session.
