Kirkwood's Cedar Rapids and Iowa City libraries are open to all students, staff, faculty and area residents. The librarians are experts in college-level research, including: finding material, evaluating sources, organizing research, and communicating findings clearly and ethically. The libraries have books, DVDs, magazines, and scholarly journals, plus online access to ebooks, scholarly peer-reviewed journals, newspapers, videos, music, and more. Ask a librarian if you can't find something you need. We can help you in your search and can borrow materials from another library for you to use.

Many resources and services are available online 24/7 through the Kirkwood website. Librarians are available to answer questions during library hours, including nights and weekends. Find current hours on our website. All Kirkwood students including distance learners, students at county centers, and dual enrolled students have full access to all library services and materials. Ask questions in person, by phone, instant message, text, and e-mail. Use the library website to access our online resources, research help guides, and video tutorials, including guides on creating APA and MLA citations. The website also has other services like:

  • print from your own device to a Kirkwood printer
  • reserve a group study room (online in Cedar Rapids, by phone in Iowa City)
  • reserve time for a reference consult, either in person or online
  • request Kirkwood Center delivery of library materials
