LIBRARY

The Iowa Lakes Library has locations on the Emmetsburg and Estherville Campuses.  Our Library offers a vast selection of books, periodicals, and databases to support your academic needs.

Resources from the library are free to use, and come in different forms including physical and digital books, films, and articles, as well as an abundance of other online resources.

All resources may be searched online, but physical materials will need to be picked up on campus.

You will find knowledgeable library staff dedicated to helping you succeed on your academic journey by assisting with the use of the resources available.

LIBRARY SERVICES

INTER-LIBRARY LOAN

Inter-Library Loan gives you access to books and articles from other libraries around Iowa and the world for FREE. If you find materials that you need that we do not currently own, please contact library staff to access this service. This service may take several weeks for a physical book so please order well in advance of when you need it. Borrowed articles are usually retrieved much sooner.

PRINTING, COPYING & SCANNING

All printing and scanning is free to students. If you need copies of something, we suggest that you use the copy machine to scan the material to your email and then print your copies for free.

TESTING SERVICES

Library staff provide HiSet, PSI (Aviation), Iowa State Dental Exams, Iowa State Pesticide Certification, and occasionally make-up testing.

Please contact Estherville Library at 712-362-7985 for PSI and Emmetsburg at 712-852-5317 for Dental and Pesticide testing.
