The Ivy Tech library is a good place to look for career information. We have hundreds of books to choose from, both in the library and online to read on a computer. We have access to millions of articles from thousands of newspapers, magazines, and journals, including dozens of Indiana newspapers. And of course, we have computers to use to surf the Internet to find web sites like those listed below. The Ivy Tech library staff are happy to assist you in your search for information. Ivy Tech students can use library resources, from on or off campus, without a problem. Non-Ivy Tech students can use many of these resources only from the library.
