Helmke Library

As northeast Indiana’s premier academic library, Helmke Library holds a vast collection of printed materials (more than 300,000 volumes). Here, you can check out as many books as you can carry. Or access the library’s numerous virtual resources from the comfort of your own home. Helmke is connected online to several major libraries and more than 150 electronic databases. The move into Helmke Library is one of the most memorable events in IPFW history. During the Book Walk of 1972, students, employees, and community groups carried books from Kettler Hall to the new building. On the first day, 85,000 books were moved, and 11,000 trips were made by volunteers who walked a total of 5,500 miles. #Fort_Wayne #Helmke #Indiana #IPFW #Joe_Kiszka #Library #Purdue #University
