Welcome from the Interim Dean
from Joyce C. Garnett, Interim Dean of the Library
Welcome to the Iowa State University Library.
The faculty and staff at the Library work diligently to meet the research and education needs of the university community. In the 21st century world of ever-changing technology, diverse learning requirements and comprehensive research goals, we strive to make relevant resources available where and when they are needed.
We are confident that the Library will help you discover the materials you seek. Take advantage of the QuickSearch function to explore and begin your research pursuit with books, journals, maps or other items. With your Iowa State University ID, create an account and gain access to our countless articles, indexes and databases.
As a premier land grant institution, Iowa State embodies the principle that an education should be available to all, as should the resources of the library. Please visit us during our convenient open hours at Parks Library on Central Campus, Veterinary Medical Library at the College of Veterinary Medicine or the Design Reading Room located in the College of Design.
I am honored to serve this library as the interim dean and invite you to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions for how to enhance your library experience.
