Flipster is a next-generation digital magazine distribution service where you can access your favorite magazines from a variety of publishers through our library via a web browser or a custom app made specifically for iPads, Android tablets and Kindle Fire tablets, and download magazines to read offline, anytime, anywhere.
The most recent issue of a magazine title will be available on Flipster. To access back issues, open the most recent issue using your computer or mobile device and look for ‘All Issues’ in the right hand column on your computer or for ‘All Issues’ in the menu on your mobile device.

INSPIRE is Indiana's Virtual Online Library. INSPIRE is a collection of online academic databases and other information resources that can be accessed by Indiana residents. INSPIRE began in January 1998 as a project of the Indiana State Library, funded by a one-time development grant from the Lilly Endowment Inc. Since that time, INSPIRE has been supported by the Indiana General Assembly through Build Indiana Funds and the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), and through a partnership with the Academic Libraries of Indiana (ALI).
INSPIRE includes full-text magazine and journal articles, websites, pamphlets, images, almanacs, full-text historic newspapers, multimedia, library catalogs, and much more. In most cases, INSPIRE provides cover-to-cover indexing and abstracts of all articles that appear in every periodical with the exception of some newspapers. Only letters to the editor, advertisements, and some images are excluded for copyright reasons.
INSPIRE is a free resource available to all Indiana residents who have Internet access. Other states may offer similar services to their own residents.
