Use IUCAT to review checked-out or requested items, renew checked-out items, or cancel requested items


IPFW patrons: IUCAT My Account access ends May 24

As part of the transition of the IPFW campus from the shared governance of IU and Purdue to solely Purdue, the IPFW Helmke Library will be migrating their holdings out of IUCAT and into an independent online library catalog. The final data transfer to the new PFW catalog will occur on May 25, 2018.

In preparation for this final data transfer, effective May 24 at 10pm EDT, PFW patrons will no longer have access to IUCAT My Account services, including online renewal, account review, etc.

IUCAT, Indiana University's online library catalog, provides comprehensive access to millions of items held by the IU Libraries statewide, including books, recordings, US government publications, periodicals, and other types of material. UITS provides the development and support for IUCAT. You can access IUCAT from any internet-connected computer or device, whether in the libraries, on campus, or off campus.

IU students, faculty, and staff can use IUCAT to review materials they've checked out or requested from IU libraries, renew their checked-out materials, or cancel materials they've requested.

To do so, on the IUCAT home page, in the top menubar, click Sign in, and then, depending on your campus:

  • For Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW), click IPFW Login, and then:
    • Students: Log in with your student lab username and password.
    • Faculty/staff: Log in with your office network username and password.
  • For all other IU campuses, click IU Login, and then log in with your IU username and passphrase.
For help logging in, see About logging into IUCAT.

Once you're logged in:

  • To view or renew checked-out materials, look under "Checkouts".
  • To view or cancel materials you requested, scroll down under "Checkouts", and look under "Delivery Requests".

To review or request renewal of materials received via Interlibrary Loan:

  1. In the top menubar of any IUCAT page, click ILL/Recall.
  2. Click the link for the Interlibrary Loan Document Delivery Service you used to request the loan.
  3. Follow that service's on-screen instructions for logging in and managing Interlibrary Loan materials.
    The ability to renew Interlibrary Loan materials is not guaranteed; renewals are granted at the discretion of the library that owns the materials.

If you encounter a problem, need help, or have a question while working with IUCAT, contact your campus reference librarian.
