Kirkwood Library Services has over 40,000 books, close to 200,000 eBooks, and thousands of academic magazines and journals available to students, faculty, and staff, both on and off campus. The library's homepage is the starting point for all information searches.
You may also request delivery of books and other physical materials with the Library search (WorldCat Discovery), located on the Library's homepage, www.kirkwood.edu/library.
Library Services also subscribes to content especially for faculty use, with journal articles and eBooks focused on supporting educational planning, curriculum, online teaching, and many more topics especially relevant to educators.
The Library has a wealth of information resources available to our users through our Library Search (WorldCat Discover) and information databases.
You can also search for books and DVDs held by both campus Libraries, and have those items delivered to your campus mail box.
The "Place Hold" function in the Library Search will place a hold on items that are already checked out, or will request delivery from Kirkwood libraries to any Kirkwood campus or center. See detailed instructions below.
In addition, the Interlibrary Loan (ILL) service delivers books from libraries around the country to the Kirkwood library for student or employee checkout. See links and directions below.
