Working with instructors to introduce IU students to the Lilly Library collections is a key part of our mission.

Rooms and library materials

Materials may be placed on hold for class use after consultation with the Library staff. It is ESSENTIAL that the staff be informed that the item on hold will be used by a class. Some materials may not withstand frequent handling, and the staff may be able to suggest alternatives or other arrangements to suit the assignment.

The Lilly Library has important primary source items in many areas, including history, literature, and the sciences. In many cases these items are unique or may exist in no other venue on campus. Use of these materials is contingent upon consultation with Library staff who will be able to make suggestions regarding the appropriateness of materials for certain assignments and/or suggest alternatives.
