Indiana University Archives

As an archives, our primary mission is to collect, organize, preserve and make accessible records documenting Indiana University's origins and development and the activities and achievements of its officers, faculty, students, alumni and benefactors. In that capacity, our collection consists of approximately 18,000 cubic feet of records, 2 million photographic images, films, architectural drawings, and electronic records spanning the university's history beginning in 1820 to the present. We invite and encourage public, students, staff, faculty, and researchers to use our collections, whether the purpose is for teaching, research, or pure curiosity.
