How To Conduct Research in the IU Libraries University Archives


The IU Libraries University Archives encourages and supports the use of its collection in the classroom and aids academic departments as they address program goals related to the use of primary sources. Utilizing primary sources in the classroom helps undergraduate and graduate students develop necessary critical research skills. The collections are rich in breadth and depth and, upon consultation with an archivist, it is likely that instructors can find materials related to their various academic disciplines.
