Library Access During Construction


Construction outside of the Wells Library (Summer 2013)
Construction outside of the Wells Library

Just outside of the Wells Library, construction on the Global and International Studies Building continues. That project changes the way library users may access the Wells Library, especially from the south and west.


The entrances to the Library remain where they have always been, but parking is limited in the lot south of the library with spaces reserved for disabled parking and service vehicles. This map will help you locate parking garages and surface lots near the Wells Library. There are also bike racks on the north and south sides of the library.In addition, IU Parking Operations offers a number of alternative transportation modes, including the Campus Bus Service and the RideShare Program.


Users may find it more convenient to check out and return library materials through the alternative channels outlined below:


Request Delivery:
  • This service allows users to request that library materials be delivered to the campus library that is most convenient.
Request Article Delivery:
  • This service allows users to request an article that is only available in print or on microfilm/form to be delivered electronically.
Books by Mail:
  • IU Bloomington faculty with a secure on-campus mail delivery location that will accommodate packages may request Books by Mail.
Returning Material:
  • Users may return most IUB Libraries materials to any of the IUB libraries on campus and may also return material via campus or federal mail.
  • Two drop boxes are available on 7th Street immediately north of the Neal Marshall / Ruth N. Halls Theatre complex.
