RARE BOOKS & MANUSCRIPTS
The Rare Books and Manuscripts Division includes over 3 million manuscripts; 5,200 collections, ranging from the early 15th century to present day. Among the collection’s strengths are Civil War-era letters and diaries, family papers and the records of many political figures from the Hoosier state. We provide reference services, instructional sessions, scanning and photocopying services, finding aids, and a variety of digital resources.
Appointments are not required but are strongly recommended in order to reduce wait times while material is being paged. To make an appointment, please email email@example.com or use the contact info below.
