Pertains to the study of the language, culture, literature and linguistics of the Catalan, the Romance language spoken in these regions of Spain: Catalunya, País Valencià, Illes Balears (Mallorca, Menorca and Eivissa), and the “franja” of Aragó bordering Catalunya.

Indiana University's Catalan program is among the oldest in North America. Since its inception in the 1960s, the program has created a demand for resources supporting instruction and research. The Catalan collection benefits greatly from a book gift program established with the prestigious Institut D’Estudis Catalans (Catalan Academy) in Barcelona.  Additionally, IU Libraries is home to the Josep Roca-Pons Archives of the North American Catalan Society. The Catalan literature collection is arguably the finest of its kind in North America.

Formats collected include monographs, serials, microforms, and video.
