About Indiana University Bloomington
Founded in 1820, Indiana University Bloomington has grown from a small state seminary into the flagship campus of a great public university with over 49,000 students and over 3,100 faculty. Innovation, creativity, and academic freedom are hallmarks of IU Bloomington and its world-class contributions in research and the arts. The campus covers over 1,800 wooded acres and is distinctive for both its park-like beauty and an architectural heritage inspired by local craftsmanship in limestone.
The Bloomington campus is home to Indiana University Libraries, (https://libraries.indiana.edu) one of the leading academic research library systems in North America. Our collections, people, and spaces use knowledge to inspire great work.
IU Libraries partners with every academic department on campus. Materials are digital, visual, audio, and print. Over 60,000 journals are offered electronically, and the libraries hold 9.9 million print volumes in 450 languages and 120,000 films in its Moving Image Archive. A long-time leader in digital library projects, IU Libraries developed wide-ranging initiatives as early as the 1990’s, and recently embarked on the ambitious university-wide Media Digi...tization and Preservation Initiative.
Indiana University’s librarians actively collect and conserve knowledge and are leaders in national conversations in areas such as diversity initiatives, digital preservation and associated technologies, the changing role of area studies librarianship, and integrating information literacy. The Libraries are the organizational home of the innovative and visionary Office of Scholarly Publishing, which brings together the work of the highly-respected Indiana University Press with the Libraries’ open access publishing initiatives.
Our visual flagship, the Herman B Wells Library, is one of the busiest academic spaces on campus, recording well over 2 million visits each year. Its recently opened Scholars’ Commons, Learning Commons and Moving Image Collections and Archives were extensive and visionary renovations that redefine the role and potential of libraries. Other library destinations of particular note are the world-class Lilly Library of rare books and manuscripts, the Wylie House Museum and collections, and the 6.4-million volume high-density Auxiliary Library Facility (ALF).
IU Libraries actively participate in local, national, and international initiatives that will define collections and services of the future. On campus, for example, we take a leadership role as active members of the Indiana University Arts and Humanities Council. Memberships include regional and national associations and consortia including the Big Ten Academic Alliance Center for Library Initiatives, the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Digital Library Federation (DLF), the Unizin Consortium and the Samvera community. The IU Libraries are a founding member of HathiTrust, a shared digital repository and a managing partner of the HathiTrust Research Center, and a member of preservation initiatives such as the Academic Preservation Trust (APTrust).
