Any Indiana resident with a valid Indiana driver's license or proof of residency can obtain a borrower's card. This card will allow you to check out materials (e.g. books, videos, CDs, and DVDs) that are available within the Indiana University Kokomo Library. Check the library's circulation loan schedule for details regarding for how long you may check out materials.
Indiana residents may browse the library's collection or search for a specific book by using IUCAT, the online catalog for all IU Libraries. To access the catalog from off-campus, start at the Indiana University Kokomo homepage. Once there, locate the gray/black navigation bar at the bottom of the page and move your mouse over the "Campus Info" label. A pop-up menu will appear; select Library from the menu. This will take you to the IU Kokomo Library homepage, which features a link to the Kokomo campus view of IUCAT (meaning all results will be located physically or virtually at the IU Kokomo Library). Click on the IUCAT link, located in the "Discovery" box below the EDS Search box, and then you may begin searching for materials.
For help with using IUCAT, see our Getting Started page.
As an Indiana resident, you may search the full catalog, but any resources that are labeled as Online Resource are only available from off-campus to IU students, faculty, and staff. However, you may access these online/electronic resources from on campus using the library's public access computers.
Here is an example of how an online/electronic resource record is displayed within IUCAT. For additional help with IUCAT, please Ask A Librarian.
Indiana residents may access all of the library's resources, both print and electronic, from two public access computers located on the first floor of the library, near the Ask A Librarian service desk. To better understand both the resources you might access at these terminals and how to best use such resources, see our Public Access and Research page.
