INDYCAT, IU's prototype web-based catalog has recently been added to online catalog menu at the IU Northwest Library. INDYCAT is part of the new Horizon automation system developed by Ameritech that all Indiana University Libraries will eventually use to create computerized records for books, journals and other library materials. The INDYCAT web-based catalog currently contains records for the IUPUI main library, the Herron Art Library and the IUPU Columbus Library. For more information, about INDYCAT, see IUPUI's INDYCAT page or go directly to the INDYCAT Web Catalog. Please note: To locate books and other materials at IU Northwest and other IU campus libraries, use IUCAT on the IO (Information Online) system.
