The campus covers over 1,800 wooded acres and is distinctive for both its park-like beauty and an architectural heritage inspired by local artisanship in limestone.
The Indiana University Bloomington Libraries (http://www.libraries.iub.edu) is among the leading academic research library systems in North America. The IUB Libraries provide strong collections, innovative service and instructional programs, and leadership in the application of information technologies. The collections support every academic discipline on campus and include more than 9 million books, journals, maps, films, and audio/visual materials in over 900 languages. Of particular note are the 6.4-million volume high-density Auxiliary Library Facility (ALF) for preservation and access to the libraries’ collections and archives, the Lilly Library of rare books and manuscripts, and the IU Libraries Moving Image Archive. The Libraries have renowned area studies collections and librarians who are leaders in the national conversation about the changing role of area studies librarianship. The Libraries are recognized leaders in integrating information literacy into the teaching and learning fabric of the university, and recently opened IU Scholars’ Commons and IU Learning Commons, two extensive renovations that have redefined the role of the Libraries in the academic missions of the university.
