Monday to Friday 
9:00 am - 4:00 pm 

Note: This service is intended primarily for the students, faculty, and staff of IU Indianapolis; however, we will attempt to answer inquiries from non-affiliated users if we are able. 

In general, reference assistance given via instant messaging will be brief.  For additional assistance, please contact a Subject Librarian.


Visit us if you have any questions about how to find information or technologies. 

Staff will assist you. 


Make an Appointment with Your Librarian 




Email your subject librarian who can help you find resources on your topic. 

You can also fill out the reference web form. Library staff will respond to you as soon as possible. 

If you have general questions like borrowing, email our Access Services team.
