The Library is
intended for the use of all members of the IUP community. While we are
pleased to permit visitors the use of our various library materials and
resources within the library building, you must apply for borrowing
privileges by way of a Library Card. Our mission here at the Regional
Campus is to provide research support to the students and faculty of the
First-Year Program and build on the information literacy skills of the
first-year student for life long learning. IUP Library ID cards for
members of the IUP community or Library Special Borrower cards for
visitors can be obtained at the Main Campus.
