Find & Borrow

In This Section:



Connect to the search tools, research materials, and specialized resources you need to be a successful Drake scholar. Start off with SuperSearch, or explore the many research databases we offer. If you're looking for a specific format, we can hook you up with books, journals, videos, newspapers, and much more.

Cowles librarians are here to help, so ask a question if you're having trouble finding what you need or you're not sure where to start. No question is too big or too small!

Borrow & Request

Get the materials you need from Cowles Library. Students can get easy access to essential course materials that instructors have placed on Course Reserve.

If we don't already have it, there's a good chance you can find it through FastTRAC, or we can get it for you through Interlibrary Loan.
