There are multiple ways to borrow materials from Ivy Tech and other statewide libraries, starting with our local INTERLIBRARY LOAN service. The delivery time varies depending on which library has the book.
In addition to our normal inter-library loan policies, we are a member of the Academic Libraries of Indiana (ALI). This allows us to create borrower's cards which allow the holder to check out materials at the other ALI member libraries. If you are interested in utilizing this service, come to the library and talk to the librarian or the library staff about receiving one of these cards.
Special note should be given to the public institutions: These universities allow any Indiana resident to check out items with a valid state ID or driver's license. Thus you do not need an ALI borrower's card for IU Northwest or Purdue Calumet, for instance.
Borrower's cards do not allow access to online resources. If you want access to online resources, it is best to ask the library staff at the corresponding library to learn the policy regarding access.
