The E-Book I Need Is Not Available Through IU Indianapolis

IU Indianapolis Libraries have a growing collection of e-books. When you find an e-book in the library catalog IUCAT the book record will include links for accessing the book from one or more IU campuses. However, you might find e-books in our catalog that belong to other IU campus libraries but not to IU Indianapolis. Unfortunately, we cannot share e-books between campuses like we do with print books. 

If you find an e-book that is not available on your campus, check the catalog to find out whether the same title is available in print. Print editions can be requested from other campuses using the Request This Button button in IUCAT.

If no IU library has the item but a print edition of that item exists elsewhere, you may request the print version through Interlibrary Loan.  

You can also request that IU Indianapolis purchase a copy of the book (in print or as an ebook) via our Purchase Request Form [IU Login Required].
