Internet Public Library


Internet Public Library

The Internet Public Library (IPL) is a non-profit, largely student-run website at Drexel University. Visitors can ask a reference question. Volunteer librarians and graduate students in library and information science form collections and answer questions. The IPL opened on March 17 1995.

The IPL was founded at the University of Michigan’s School of Information. Michigan SI students almost exclusively generated its content. They also managed the Ask a Question reference service.

Since January 1 2007 it is being run by the "IPL Consortium", a group of 15 colleges still including the University of Michigan, and is being hosted by Drexel University's College of Information Science and Technology. With a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Drexel intends to additionally use it as a "'technological training center' for digital librarians."
