IUP Punxsutawney Library

  • The IUP Punxsutawney Campus Library provides research materials and support to Punxsutawney Campus students and faculty.

    Research Help

    Library faculty and staff are eager to answer your questions and provide assistance with any assignments requiring research or the use of books, articles, websites, and other sources of information.

    See Carol Asamoah in the library for help, or talk to Professor Carrie Bishop in her office 211 or through e-mail at cbishop@iup.edu.

    Library and Information Literacy Instruction

    Library faculty provide instruction to students on using the library and improving their research skills in several ways.

    • A librarian may be a guest speaker in a course where students are required to conduct research as part of an assignment. The librarian will teach students how to find and use the most useful tools and techniques for finding great information to complete the assignment.
    • Librarians also create guides, tutorials, and videos that help students become better researchers and information users. Check out the Distance Learning Library Services Guide to learn more about using the IUP Libraries.
    • Library faculty regularly offer LIBR 151: Introduction to Information Literacy at the Punxsutawney Campus. LIBR 151 provides students with a solid foundation of information literacy skills, including finding, evaluating, and using information found in print and online.

    Collections

    The print book and magazine collection at the Punxsutawney Campus Library supports the needs of the regional campus students and faculty and reflects the subjects that are taught on campus.

    Punxsutawney Campus students also have access to materials at the Indiana Campus Libraries. Students can access electronic journal articles by using the libraries’ subscription databases and can request books from the Indiana Campus by using Inter-Library Loan.

    The IUP Library discovery service, called I-Search, is a great place to begin your search for resources located in Punxsutawney and Indiana.
