about iLibrary
Welcome to iLibrary Online Databases

Welcome to iLibrary, the starting point for information from reference databases made available for public use by paid subscriptions from the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library and other library funding agents. Links from this site lead to sources purchased by the library community in electronic form which are comparable to the print subscriptions held within our libraries.

In contrast to the Internet, these sources provide searches that are efficient and results that are reliable. Their contents include full-text articles from magazines and newspapers as well as information from standard library reference sources and databases.

Access is available from:

  • computers in any IndyPL library location
  • computers at remote locations like work, home, or school
    A valid IndyPL library card barcode number and PIN is required for remote access

Users at remote locations who do not have IndyPL cards, but who are Indiana residents, can search some of these resources at the state-sponsored INSPIRE website.

Funds for these paid subscriptions come from: the Indianapolis Public Library (IndyPL); the Marion County Internet Library (funded by a grant from the Library Fund of The Indianapolis Foundation, a Central Indiana Community Foundation affiliate); and the INSPIRE network (funded by the State of Indiana through the Indiana Cooperative Library Services Authority).

For more information or help in using these sources, please contact a library staff member or Email the IndyPL Webmaster.
