Support the IUPUI University Library

The IUPUI University Library is a cutting edge, patron focused, research oriented, public academic library. All of the work we do is to help educate and support the research of IUPUI faculty and students and to share knowledge with our community. Our collections, research, and innovative work could not be done without the support of donors like you. Thank you for considering a gift to the IUPUI University Library!

Collections Fund


Our well known and robust collection of archives focus on IU and IUPUI history, German-Americana, and the study and practice of philanthropy. Support the expansion of those collections with a gift to this fund.
