Whether you're a seasoned researcher with decades of experience in your field, or a novice just beginning your academic journey, IU Libraries can connect you with the resources and support you need at all stages of your research.
Consult With a Librarian
Connect with a member of the IU Libraries team for help at any stage of the research process.
The Government Information, Maps and Microforms Services Department (GIMMS) has developed a citation guide for researchers:
Doing company or industry research? Need to cite annual reports, data from Factiva, ThomsonOne or other similar sources? The Business/SPEA Information Commons staff have a handy guide for you!

Digital Preservation for Faculty Research
Digital preservation services currently provided by the Indiana University-Bloomington Libraries include file and media migration, file format recommendations, and overall project guidance. If you have any general questions regarding digital preservation or you would like guidance in managing a personal, institutional, or consortial collection, please contact the Digital Collections Services department.
We can provide researchers and faculty with advice and/or assistance for archival-quality scanning and digitization of print materials, and with management/migration of born-digital objects. This includes:
- Digitization of books, images or media, particularly fragile or unique items.
- Scanning a book or serial that is out of copyright, which could be added to the Indiana University Digital Library.
For more information, please contact Kara Alexander, Digital Media Specialist in Digital Collections Services for scanning guidelines and best practices.
