Library Resources

Library Resources

The library has two main resources, the Online Catalogue and Electronic (E-) Resources. The Online Catalogue is a catalogue of books, periodicals, theses and old research reprints that are available within the library. The E-Resources are the numerous databases of e-journals, e-books and other information.

It is prohibited to share Usernames and Passwords for the subscribed E-Resources to anyone who is not a current icipe employee or postgraduate student.

Off-campus access to information resources

Currently, the Online Catalogue can only be accessed on campus. Some of the E- Resources are open access, while others can be accessed off-campus through EZproxy.


Visitors to the campus are welcome to use of the library facilities for reference and private study. Visitors should first register at the library front desk. Visitors can access E- Resources via the dedicated computers in the library. WiFi is available, however many e-journals and databases are not available to visitors through WiFi.
