Library Services

The Itasca Community College Library has a wide variety of research materials located in the reference collection, electronic databases, book stacks, government document, audiovisual materials, periodical files, and newspaper collections (national, state, and local).

Requirements to check-out materials

The Library is open to everyone in the college community. To check-out materials you must first obtain a photo ID card. There is not charge for the initial card but there is a $5.00 replacement fee for any lost or stolen cards.

You cannot check-out materials without presenting a valid ID card

This policy is enforced to protect you from someone else using your library account. In addition, you must have a valid ID card to perform the following functions:

  • Borrow materials through interlibrary loan
  • Access periodical indexes and databases online
  • Use reserve materials that are restricted to "IN LIBRARY USE"

Check-out periods

  • Books - 4 weeks
  • Periodicals - 1 week
  • Audiovisual Materials - 7 days
  • Reference Materials - non-circulating
  • Reserve Materials - non-circulating

Reference Service

Reference/research service is available during Library hours to assist students, faculty, staff and community users in finding and utilizing Library resources.
