Welcome to the Herron Art Library

The Herron Art Library offers the IUPUI community and residents of Indiana research materials on art and artists pre-history through the present day. The library formally began its service to the central Indiana community as an art research library in 1906. Today, the library continues to enjoy its long-standing reputation as central Indiana's primary lending art library for modern and contemporary art. The library's tradition of responding to the present-day needs of its users is reflected in the resources, services, and special internal and external projects in which the library engages.
