Indian Hills Community College has two libraries — one on the Ottumwa Campus and one on the Centerville Campus. We provide services to all residents of our 10–county area, including Indian Hills students and staff.
In addition to the wide range of materials in our own collections, the interlibrary loan system allows access to items not available locally.
Computers and wireless internet access are available for public use on both campuses.
If you need assistance determining the most appropriate resources to use for your research projects or how to use them, please ask one of our helpful staff members.
