We serve the IIRP Graduate School’s faculty, students and staff; we are happy to accommodate external researchers as resources permit.

Borrowing policy: Borrowing Library materials is restricted to Bethlehem-based IIRP faculty and staff. Others may use books and other library items on-site at our Bethlehem campus office.
