At Iowa Western, our library is a Cyber Library. What is a Cyber Library? A Cyber Library is a library with all books, journals, articles, and media available through the internet. That’s right… we have no books in our library!

All current Iowa Western Community College students, faculty and staff have 24/7 access to full-text journal articles, books, and other resources through the Cyber Library. If you are a current student, faculty or staff member, login into ROC to access the Cyber Library on or off campus.

Students, faculty and staff also can check out a laptop that can be used to look up library resources or work on class assignments.

The Iowa Western Community College Library system provides learning opportunities at the Council Bluffs and Clarinda Campuses and the Cass, Page/Fremont, and Shelby county centers. Students and faculty may contact any of these locations to inquire about local programs, services, and resources.
