The OCLS staff are based in Marion, Indiana, but they are only a mouse click or a phone call (800-521-1848) away! The OCLS team provides:

  • Home access to over 30 online academic research databases.
  • Rapid photocopy, fax, and e-mail shipment of journal articles not found online.
  • Research assistance when the regional librarian is not available.

Library Subscription Databases

IWU's online databases provide access to scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles and book texts. Some resources are only available in hardcopy at the IWU Jackson Library in Marion, Indiana, and may be obtained by using the online request form or calling 800-521-1848 for assistance.
