National and International
Did you know that there is one-on-one, personalized help available to you from a librarian? You'll not only walk away with a LOT of information for your research paper, but you'll learn something about the research process. All of Kirkwood's reference librarians have Master's degrees in Library and Information Science and are here to help you!
The libraries can offer you:
Books! Search the library catalog
Interlibrary loan (ILL): If Kirkwood doesn't own a book, we can help you find it at another local library (Iowa City or Cedar Rapids public libraries) or request the book via ILL. Just search our WorldCat Discovery catalog to locate the item, and click the Request button. Complete directions are on the ILL guide.
Research databases: Kirkwood subscribes to many research databases that collect information from scholarly journals, newspapers, magazines, and many other print and electronic resources.
Consultation with a professional librarian: never hesitate to ask a reference librarian for help. It's our job to make sure you're successful in research and school!
We offer other services such as computers, laptop check-out, meeting rooms, and more. See our Virtual Library Tour for more information!
