Welcome from the Dean

Brenda JohnsonWelcome to the Indiana University Libraries.

Whether you are an incoming freshman, a graduate student, or a faculty member, your academic needs are our top priority.

Our mission is to support excellence in teaching, learning, and research at Indiana University by providing the collections, services, and environments you need to succeed. As a result of these efforts, the Association of College and Research Libraries presented the IU Bloomington Libraries with the 2010 Excellence in Academic Libraries Award. We are one of only 11 university libraries in the country to receive this prestigious award. This recognition truly exemplifies the hard work and dedication of our outstanding librarians and staff.

I invite you to explore this site and visit each of our award-winning libraries. Discover for yourself the abundant information we provide the academic community, citizens of the state, and researchers worldwide.
