The IUP Libraries strives to provide excellent support for distance education and off-campus access to library resources. Most of the time, you can simply visit the IUP Libraries website to get electronic access to our catalog and online databases, twenty-four hours a day. In addition, we offer two services—LibAnswers and LibGuides—that provide answers to common questions and guidance on doing library research.
For your convenience, we’ve collected a few common questions about off-campus access below.
You can use E-Books from EBSCO (formerly NetLibrary) to find e-books.
You can search for an article in one of our Article Databases.
You can search for theses and dissertations in ProQuest Digital Dissertations.
You can request materials through our interlibrary loan services:
If your question is not answered above, and you are unable to find the resource or information you need on the IUP Libraries home page, please contact a librarian and we will be happy to help!
