Computing and Printing


Many library resources are available only online.  All current IU students, faculty and staff may log on to computers in the libraries to use online books, articles and other information. Computers in the IU Bloomington Libraries are provided to support the academic and research work of students, faculty, staff, and visitors to the Libraries.

The IUB Libraries partner with UITS to provide locations for wireless access throughout the public areas in libraries around the IU Bloomington campus. IU students, faculty, staff and affiliates can find more information about connecting to IU Secure, the University wireless network, via the Knowledge Base article, About IU Secure wireless. Information about wireless access for visitors to campus is available at Wireless Access for Visitors.

Visitors may request a free Library Guest Account at the circulation desk in any IUB library.  Some libraries have Library Express workstations that provide access to the library catalog and selected information resources without a login.

Priority use of library workstations is for students, faculty and staff of Indiana University.  Non-affiliated library users with Library Guest Accounts may be asked to relinquish the workstations to the priority users. All users are asked to please note our statement on Appropriate Use of Public Access Computers. To access U.S. Federal information, consult staff in Government Information, Maps, and Microforms, Wells Library, East Tower 2.  812-855-6924. Email:
