Update (May 4): Fine Arts Library to close permanently on May 12, 2017
The Fine Arts Collection will permanently move to the Wells Library due to a major renovation of the IU Eskenazi Museum of Art. The closure is expected in May 2017. As specific details of the closure are known, updates will be widely communicated and will be linked from this post.
After the closure, faculty and students will continue to have access to library services and resources through the Herman B Wells Library.
Books and bound journals: All new books and journals acquired for the Fine Arts Collection will be housed in the Wells Library. To accommodate the Fine Arts Collection in the Wells Library, some materials such as lesser-used books and bound journals, and fragile or older material, will be transferred to the Libraries' Auxiliary Library Facility (ALF). While the majority of the collection will be available in the open stacks in Wells, researchers can request items for delivery from ALF or Wells (see Services below) using the Library catalog interface, IUCAT.
E-journals and Fine Arts related search tools: Tools such as ARTstor Images, ARTbibliographies Modern, Art & Architecture Source and Arts and Humanities Citation Index will continue to be available using desktops, laptops, and other mobile devices. For a complete listing of art-related search tools and databases visit the Art & Art History Research page.
Services: Print reserves, delivery, reference services, etc. will continue until the end of the spring semester in the Fine Arts Library. Beginning summer session 2017, print reserves will be available in Wells Library.
The Fine Arts Library will be removed as a delivery location within IUCAT on May 7, following the end of the spring semester. Items on hold at the Fine Arts Library will be transferred to Wells Library following the closure date. If you have items currently checked out from the Fine Arts Library, you may return them to any IU Library or book drop. Contact Access Services in the Wells Library with questions.
Faculty and graduate students with secure mailboxes are encouraged to sign up for office delivery service.
For additional services such as Reference and Instructional support, contact Angela Courtney, Head of Arts and Humanities or Catherine Minter, Librarian for Germanic Studies, French & Italian, Philosophy, History & Philosophy of Science, Classical Studies, and Linguistics, Associate Librarian.
