Library Policies

Library Mission Statement The Ivy Tech Community College Libraries are full partners in the educational and workforce development mission of the College. The libraries teach research strategies, support the curriculum, and encourage independent and lifelong learning by providing the space, information resources, instruction, and related services essential for academic success. The Libraries advance information literacy, critical thinking, and collaborative learning in a welcoming environment that promotes, and is enriched by, the diverse cultural and intellectual interests of students, faculty, and community.

Checking Out Library Materials Use your student ID card to check out up to 10 items. Student ID cards can be obtained at in the Library / LRC (2nd floor). If you are unable to check out items due to fines owed, etc., materials can be held for you at the circulation desk for up to 3 days. Do not loan your library card or books to anyone else. You are responsible for damaged or lost books checked out to your card.

Loan Periods Books can be checked out for two weeks. DVDs and videos can be checked out for one week.

Returns If you are unable to drop your items off at the Library / LRC during normal operating hours, there is a drop box outside the Library / LRC entrance that can be used if we are closed but the campus itself is open.

Renewals Items may be renewed three times.  Materials may be renewed in person at the library, or online (before they are overdue) by going to IvyCat, and then clicking on Patron near the top of the screen. 

Overdue Fees  Overdue fees are shown in this chart.  Overdue fees must be paid to the Bursar's Office at the Kokomo campus (Logansport does not have a Bursar's Office at this time).

Item not returned

Overdue, Lost or Damaged Items Failure to pay fees for lost or damaged items will result in suspension of your borrowing privileges. You will also be unable to register for classes, drop or add classes, graduate, or get a copy of your transcript.

Borrowing From Other Libraries Students and employees can request items owned by another library. Please see our request material guidelines for more information.

Library Instruction Staff will customize library instruction in areas from general familiarization to intense focus on a particular topic or project. Library instruction for the online Library can take place in your classroom or in another computer equipped classroom that you reserve.  Professors are required to be in attendance for all instructional sessions. A project giving students hands-on research experience is also available. For more information, please see our guidelines for scheduling instruction (guidelines are the same for Kokomo and Logansport).

Printing The library provides both black & white and color printing services to students, staff, and faculty, but patrons need to be responsible regarding their print jobs. Students start each semester with a $5 balance for print funds. After that allotment has been used, they need to go to MyIvy and click the "Pay for Printing" button or go to the Bursar's Office on the Kokomo campus to pay for more printing. Wireless printing for students' devices is also available. Ask for staff assistance when encountering printer problems.

Phone Use Please make/take cell phone calls outside the library. In case of emergency, a library staff member may dial an outgoing (local) call for you.

Children in the Library Minors are NOT allowed in the computer lab. Minors in the Library / LRC must be attended at ALL times.

Donations to the library Donations of recently published books or videos that meet the information needs of Ivy Tech students, faculty, and staff are always appreciated. Please see a librarian for more information on how to make a donation.

Food and Drink Due to damage to library property, no food or drink will be allowed in the Logansport Library / LRC. Please enjoy your food and drink in the student commons area on the first floor.

For Faculty

Schedule a library instruction session
Yes! A librarian can come to your classroom and provide instruction that covers research skills and library resources. The sessions can be customized to offer assignment specific guidance.

Please read the information below and then contact Darlene ​Vasquez to schedule an instruction session.

Consider this when requesting a session:

Your presence is requested.  When instructors remain with their classes during library sessions, students are more involved.  The learning experience is enhanced when instructors are available for questions and clarifications.

Give at least one week’s notice: The library staff needs time to prepare for instructional sessions.

Library instruction is more meaningful for students when it is relevant to their current course assignments.  Please make sure students have a clear understanding of their course assignments before attending library instruction sessions. Ideally, library instruction should be scheduled close to the time students begin working on their research-related assignments.

If you can, provide library staff with your written instructions for specific course assignments.  This helps us prepare for library instruction and allows us to meet the specific information needs of your students. We also appreciate any specific information about assignments your students are working on, your expectations, special needs, or particular resources you would like us to include.

Resources and reserves

How do you find what resources the library has?

The library's website can be accessed multiple ways. If you log onto MyIvy, you can click on the library link on the left, and the library website should open. 

Our website can also be accessed directly in IvyLearn. Click on the Library tab in the upper right and it will take you to the main page. On the left select Kokomo, and you'll be at our page.

The Ask-A-Librarian link is for students to submit research questions to librarians.

Reserves

Faculty can place items in the library on reserve for their students. Reserve items can be used in the library but not taken out, which ensures all students have access.

To place an item on reserve contact library staff. 

  • let them know the item to be reserved
  • the course it will be held for
  • and for how long. 

We can also place material on reserve provided by the instructor. Bring the material you want to have on reserve, and we will make it available to students to use in the library. 

Please disregard the information on this page until further notice. Since all Ivy Tech campuses are temporarily closed to the public, there will be no new laptop loans until the campus reopens. Please visit https://www.ivytech.edu/coronavirus.html if you have further questions. Thank you!

Laptop Loan Program

Who can borrow a laptop?

All currently registered Ivy Tech students taking classes at the Logansport campus may borrow laptops. Students residing in Cass County taking online Ivy Tech courses also may borrow a laptop.

The first time you borrow a laptop, you will be required to fill out a Laptop Registration and Liability form. You will need to bring your driver’s license or state ID and student ID number to borrow the laptop. Please allow 30 minutes for this process the first time you borrow a laptop. After that first time, the process usually takes about 10 minutes. Staff will check laptop for visible damage upon return of a laptop,

Where can I borrow and/or return a laptop?

Laptops may be borrowed from the circulation desk in the library and must be checked out in person. The laptop loan program operates between the hours of 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Monday; 10 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, 10 a.m.--5:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; and from 9 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on Friday.

The laptop loan period is one week. For instance, if the laptop is checked out on a Tuesday, it must be returned by 6 p.m. on the following Tuesday. Return time is one hour prior to closing.

Laptops may not be renewed or reserved. You may check out a laptop again after waiting one full business day following your last loan period.

Software available on the laptop:

The laptops are equipped with Windows 10, Kurzweil, Chrome, Mozilla, Edge, Windows Media Player, Microsoft Office 2019, and other essential programs. Additional educational based software is also available, such as MyMathLab and Kurzweil. You may not install software on the laptop. You may access the internet from the laptop anywhere wireless internet access is available.

Can personal software and documents be saved on or printed from the laptop?

When the laptop is returned, all user installed software and files are erased. Please save your documents to a USB drive or CD, or e-mail them to yourself. Printer drivers are not installed on the laptop; however, mobile printing is available on campus. Please see LRC staff for directions.

IF THE LAPTOP IS LATE, you will be charged $5 per day. Late fees will not be applied on weekends or holidays, but will be applied each business day the laptop is overdue. Fees may be paid in person or by phone through the Kokomo campus business office, using cash, check, or credit/debit card, OR on MyIvy using a debit/credit card.

Who is responsible for theft, damage or loss of the laptop?

You are financially responsible for the laptop and accessories while they are signed out in your name.

What if I need help?

The staff can assist with limited computer usage, virtual library, and research questions, but are not available for extensive training. Users are expected to have working knowledge of the laptop and programs. The staff may be reached at 574-753-5101, ext. 2234.
