WHAT WE DO:

Build the Library’s collections – We are responsible for selecting library materials on and about Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East. We actively seek input from faculty and students. You are invited to recommend an item for purchase or contact the librarian responsible for your subject to discuss collections.

Provide reference and research consultation – Area Studies Librarians are available to meet with you for in-depth reference and research consultations. You may contact Area Studies librarians by e-mail, telephone, or visiting our offices and web pages.

Teach students how to do research – We provide library learning experiences tailored to specific IUB undergraduate and graduate courses. We work with instructors to gather relevant resources and introduce students to appropriate research methods.
