Get Started with Research

Find a Book

Use IUCAT to find books and e-books. IUCAT is accessible from the library homepage.

When you access IUCAT from the IU Kokomo Library homepage, by default your search results will be limited to items held by IU Kokomo. You can expand your search to other IU libraries by checking the "All IUCAT" box located beneath the search box. To request materials from other IU libraries or conduct an advanced search, we recommend first signing in to IUCAT using your IU credentials.

Find a Database

The Library has a large collection of databases that contain full text articles, e-books, streaming videos, primary sources, government documents, and more. Access lists of these databases by subject, type, and A-Z on the library homepage. See our Tips for Using the Database Lists for more ideas on how to search library databases.

A list of other guides and tutorials for library resources is also available here: Guides and Tutorials.

Get a Library Card

To check out library materials, you must present your IU Kokomo ID or Indiana Resident borrower's card at the Circulation desk. Learn more about the library cards available to you:

  • IU Kokomo students, faculty, and staff
  • Indiana residents unaffiliated with IU Kokomo

Indiana residents may obtain a borrower's card by presenting a valid Indiana driver's license or proof of residency. Read more about resources available to Indiana residents on our Library Resources for Visitors page.
