Amy Cope

Director, Operations

Herman B Wells Library 232

(812) 855-6610

With more than 20 years of experience at IU Libraries in multiple units and branch libraries, and more than 30 years in office administration, accounts management, and personnel supervision, Amy was appointed Director of Operations in 2022. Prior to that appointment, she served as Director of Administrative Services for Ruth Lilly Dean of University Libraries from 2009-2022, assisting three different deans. 

In her current role, Amy works directly with librarians and staff at all IU campuses, as well as many campus and university partners. She also leads and oversees all aspects of the annual IU Board of Trustees election in accordance with Indiana state laws and university policies. In this crucial university function, she liaises with university administrators, prospective trustee candidates, current members of the Board of Trustees, and countless members of the university’s nearly one million graduates.   

Amy received her Bachelor of Arts degree in music education from Simpson College in her home state of Iowa and earned a master’s degree in voice performance at Indiana University, where she also completed major coursework for a doctorate in voice performance. This training in opera and voice led her to New York City shortly after 9/11 and she lived there for more than seven years. 

In NYC, as well as performing on a regular basis, she also served as an accounting agent in property management. In that job, she managed more than $1.9M monthly residential and commercial rental income.  

Proud to call Bloomington home for nearly 25 years, Amy will extol its virtues at any time.
