Indiana Resident Resources

Resources available off campus

Some of our resources are also available to library visitors from off campus.


Visitors may browse the library's collection or search for specific materials in IUCAT. The full catalog may be searched from anywhere. Review suggestions for finding items in our catalog.

Catalog items labeled as Online Resource are accessible to visitors on campus through a Guest Computing Account.

  • EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS)

EDS is a resource discovery tool. It allows you to search across a variety of databases at once rather than searching databases or catalogs one at a time. Some of the databases included in EDS are IUCAT, Gale Virtual Reference Library, Health & Wellness Resource Center, MasterFILE Premier, and many more.

Access link for visitors: EDS Guest Access

In order to view some full text articles from off campus, an Indiana University Kokomo login may be required. Visitors can access these items by visiting our library in person and obtaining a Guest Computing Account.

  • Government Information

The Indiana University Kokomo Library is a selective depository for both Federal and state government documents. We currently select approximately 31% of the items available from the Government Printing Office (GPO). By law, all print and online government materials are available for use by the general public at no cost. Learn more about our Government Information Collection.
