Indiana's virtual library

You'll find a world of information, specialized databases, and special resources through INSPIRE.


Learn a language at Rosetta Stone. Find that elusive academic paper in INSPIRE's advanced search. Look up articles in Consumer Reports.


Take practice tests for everything from 6th-grade basic math skills to PSATs to AP tests to GMATs through the Testing & Education Reference Center. You can also create targeted resumes.


If you're an Indiana resident, you can create your own account that you can come back to whenever you want, from any computer or smart device.

For use only at MPL
