Welcome! This guide was created to help users discover and access archives and special collections relating to IU in wartime.  Please use the tabs at left to navigate through the offerings at repositories across campus. 

Just a note that this guide is a continual work in progress and that these lists are not necessarily comprehensive. All archives and special collections regularly receive new materials, have backlogs of materials without publicly available descriptions, and redescribe existing materials to uncover previously hidden voices. If you do not find what you are looking for on these pages, please be sure to reach out!
