About the Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Library

The Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Library (NMBCCL) was founded in 1972. It is a hub of information networking, cultural research, and bibliographic instruction and learning for students, faculty, and staff at Indiana University. The NMBCC Library began as an informal reading room, grew into a distinguished reference and information center on the Bloomington campus, and was organizationally established as a branch library of Indiana University Libraries in 1991-92.


The Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Library supports and promotes awareness and understanding of the African American experience, history and culture through library collections, displays, exhibits, facilities, and programs.


The Neal-Marshall Black Culture Center Library (NMBCCL) serves as a cultural resource for all Indiana University students, faculty, and staff and will be a center of campus cultural activity that highlights Black Culture and the interchange between it and all American culture.


The Neal Marshall Black Culture Center Library Newsletter is generally published three times per academic year, with some special issues.  The newsletter highlights upcoming events and programs at the library, new acquisitions to our collection,  and other information our patrons will find valuable and interesting.  Pick up a print copy of the newsletter at the NMBCC Library or view all our newsletters online.
