Iowa Central Community College

Students and Faculty

We welcome students and faculty from the Storm Lake campus of Iowa Central Community College to use our building, collection and services. Please present your ICCC identification card at the Library Circulation Desk so that we can add you to the patron database.  If you just need to use our computers, stop by the Circulation Desk to sign in and get the password of the day.  Here are just a few of the services we offer.


  • Over 100 databases in a wide array of subject areas that allow researchers to identify scholarly, popular or newspaper articles.  Many of these databases also provide links to full-text journal articles. Access to BVU Library databases is limited to on-campus access only for ICCC students and faculty.
  • BVU Library Catalog provides the ability to search for the numerous books and other materials we own.  To place a "hold" on an item that is checked out, click the PLACE HOLD button associated with that item.
