We also subscribe to physical newspapers such as the The Herald-Times, Indiana Daily Student, Indianapolis Star, Ellettsville Journal, The New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Brown County Democrat, and other local and national newspapers. While these do not circulate, they can be read in our buildings. Many can be read online as well.

For other physical items, you can use our catalog to search for items related to a certain topic, such as “political participation,” “social change,” or “community organizations.” Please contact a librarian if you need assistance.

We provide access to a number of databases. Some of these are open to anyone and others require a library account.
