This site is a portal for accessing finding aids, which are descriptions of Special Collections and Archives - ones chiefly containing materials other than books - from libraries, archives, and other units at Indiana University, Bloomington, and from other institutions around the state of Indiana.
The Indiana Daily Student from 1867-1924 can be searched in the NewspaperARCHIVE; however, the later papers will need to be searched on microfilm. Microfilms can be accessed on the 2nd floor of the East Tower in the Wells Library. The Archives also has an index for the IDS that goes through 1938, which will help fill the gap between what is in the NewspaperARCHIVE and the microfilm.
The IU Bulletins are located on the north side of the wall in the reading room and contain valuable information about faculty, departments, courses offered, information about the campus and student body. Many of these are available digitally through HathiTrust. while later bulletins can be accessed online here: http://bulletins.iu.edu/iub/.
What began as a two-page church bulletin by co-founders George Pheldon Stewart and William H. Porter, the Indianapolis Recorder is now one of the top African-American publications in the nation. Established in 1897, the Indianapolis Recorder focused on local people and events in Indianapolis but also reported national events. IUPUI University is pleased to present the Indianapolis Recorder Digital Collection. Providing access to the 1899-2005 run of the Indianapolis Recorder will have an impact on researchers from all walks of life.

Archives of Institutional Memory (or AIM@IU) was created to collect, preserve and make available the official records with long-term value produced by the Indiana University administrative and academic community.
The Bloomington Faculty Council (BFC) is a representative body of elected members from the Bloomington campus of Indiana University.
The digitized BFC collection features two key documents: BFC minutes and circulars. The BFC minutes are verbatim transcriptions of the monthly BFC meetings from each academic year. The circulars are supplementary documents that often serve as the basis of discussions at BFC meetings and range in scope from Memorial Resolutions to policy changes in the Academic Calendar or Faculty Handbook.
The Trustees minutes includes official acts, resolutions, policies, agreements, and other business records pertaining to the governance of Indiana University. The Archives houses the official paper copies of the minutes from 1838 to the present, except 1859-1883 which were destroyed in the campus fire of 1883 at the former location of Indiana University at Seminary Square.

In addition, a few websites for Indiana University offices that are responsible for operations at the system-wide level have also been collected.
The Indiana University Office of University Archives and Records Management holds a vast photograph and negative collection that comprises approximately two-million images. The majority of these were shot by Indiana University’s Photographic Services Department, Athletic Department, and News Bureau. The remaining images were shot mostly by local professional photographers, alumni, and faculty. Nearly all of the images document the history of Indiana University.
The Indiana Geological Survey recently rescued a collection of over 25,000 photographs from the early to mid-1900s; these photographs were used by the Indiana Limestone Company (Bedford, Ind.) for marketing purposes, namely, to illustrate architectural styles, limestone uses, and limestone types. The images reflect the urban transformation of the United States, but were hidden for decades in a dilapidated house on the outskirts of a quarrying operation in southern Indiana. The collection shows the extensive use of Indiana limestone in commercial, municipal, institutional, and residential building projects in nearly every state. Most of the black and white photos are 8 x 10 inches and are mounted on cloth; glued to the cloth backing are typed or handwritten labels that provide information on the location and name of the building, architect, date of construction, type and quantity of limestone, and other building details. The majority of the photographs were taken by professional photographers and the photos are stamped with the photographer’s name or company. Indiana University’s Office of the Vice Provost provided funding for this portion of the collection to be inventoried, catalogued, and scanned by the Indiana Geological Survey. The collection available here is of images from Indiana and Chicago and their corresponding data.
Charles Weever Cushman, amateur photographer and Indiana University alumnus, bequeathed approximately 14,500 Kodachrome color slides to his alma mater. The photographs in this collection bridge a thirty-two year span from 1938 to 1969, during which time he extensively documented the United States as well as other countries. Large sections of the collection document urban architecture and community life in cities such as Chicago, San Francisco and New Orleans.
