Getting to the Fine Arts Library

While the Fine Arts Library is easily accessible from both the IU Art Museum and the School of Fine Arts, it can be confusing to locate your first time visiting.

  • Here is a map with an overview of these and other accessible directions:






    When you enter the Art Museum via the main entrance, go to the left, toward the information desk.
