To aid in their studies, INI students have access to the campus libraries, which maintain over a million books and subscribe to relevant periodicals and databases, such as the extensive Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc. (IEEE) database. Remote students are afforded every resource available to students on the Pittsburgh campus, and they can have any book the libraries have in the collection, or are able to order, shipped directly to them.
