Searching for Library Materials

You can search the print and electronic holdings of all IU Libraries using IUCAT, the University's online library catalog.

Need to Borrow from a Different Library? 

If the material you need is not available from an IU library, you can submit an interlibrary loan request, and our staff will try to retrieve it from a non-IU library.
