Welcome to the Walter E. Helmke Library at Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW). This self-guided tour will introduce you to Helmke Library's physical and virtual environment for finding and evaluating information and doing research. We highlight features of the library building, and introduce our staff, collections, and services.
The tour (virtual or walking versions) should take you about half an hour to complete. At the end, there is a short quiz testing your ability to navigate the library.
