Power Library

Further resources available outside of IUP Libraries

Who uses Power Library?

Power Library is Pennsylvania's Electronic Library so anyone who lives in PA or is a current student at IUP can obtain a library eCard to access these resources. Students who are from outside of PA may use the 15705 zip code for Indiana.

Commonwealth Libraries has purchased subscriptions to these resources to provide Pennsylvanians with online access. This project is made possible in part by Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services and through the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania’s Library Access funds administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, Office of Commonwealth Libraries.
