The Libraries Annex is an off-site storage facility for the University of Iowa libraries. Utilizing a high-density storage system, the Annex can hold up to 4.8 million volumes in its temperature controlled environment.

Home to over 1 million items, the Libraries Annex’s collections can be accessed through Infohawk+.  Document delivery and Interlibrary Loan services are also available.

The collection is organized by size of the item and placed on shelves up to 22 feet high.  The collection is neither accessible to patrons nor browseable.  University affiliates such as faculty, staff, community borrowers, graduate and undergraduate students are eligible to request materials for delivery to campus library locations.  Others users must use the interlibrary loan service at their local library.
