The Indiana University Bookman was published irregularly from 1956 through 1988 by the Indiana University Library for bibliophiles of Indiana and friends of the university.
The 17 issues were edited by Cecil K. Byrd and William R. Cagle. Some focused on a particular topic or subject, such as 19th-century London materials in the Lilly Library (No. 12), film studies collections in the Lilly Library (No. 15), or illuminated manuscripts in the Lilly Library (No. 17). Other issues examined a variety of topics.
