All scholars and researchers are welcome to use the resources of the IUB Libraries.
Students, faculty and staff of Indiana University, persons affiliated with Indiana University, residents of the State of Indiana, Big Ten Academic Alliance (formerly CIC) Scholars, and OCLC Scholars may borrow or check out library materials. (More information about library cards). Most libraries in the IU Bloomington Library system have the same basic policies for book checkout and renewal. Individual libraries maintain some special collections.
