Procedures for Visiting School Groups

Requesting a Library Visit

IU Kokomo requires a minimum of two weeks' written notice for school groups coming to tour or use the library. A form for requesting library visits, tours, and instruction is included in the Visiting Group Packet below. If you have any questions regarding the request form, please contact the Information Literacy Librarian, Yan He, at or (765) 455-9249.

Library Instruction

Library instruction for IUCAT, the library's online catalog, and online databases is available upon request. Library instruction can also be geared to the particular group's assignment or research needs.

Library Cards

A form for Indiana University library cards is also included in the Visiting Group Packet. Both parent and student signatures are required for cards to be prepared in advance of the class visit. The forms should be returned to the library at least 72 hours in advance of the group's visit in order to ensure student entries into the Indiana University library system.


Parking for school buses is available in Lot G of the Observatory (campus map). Students may be picked up/dropped off at either the East or the West side of the library building.

If you need one-day visitor parking permits for private vehicles, please let the library staff know this when you schedule your visit. A parking permit will be made available to print prior to your visit.


Lunch in the Kelley Student Center is an option for visiting groups. Please let the library staff know if groups will be having lunch. If desired, the library will schedule the group with the cafeteria.

Computer Accounts

The Library will arrange for guest computer accounts for your students. These accounts will only work while your students are on campus for their visit. Note: Filtering software is not installed on Indiana University computers. Your students are expected to abide by their usual and customary school policies while using the Internet at IU Kokomo. They are also expected to abide by the Indiana University Appropriate Use of Information Technology Resources policy.
