The Indiana University Bloomington Libraries have been recognized by peers as the top university library in the country, a national library association announced in spring 2010.
Indiana University has six science libraries on campus. You will have access to subscriptions to hundreds of electronic journals of interest to scientists, many with direct links to the abstracting and indexing databases. A variety of other databases are provided on public computers through the IU libraries, including the Beilstein CrossFire plus Reactions and the Gmelin databases.
The print collection of the Chemistry Library covers the major chemistry and biochemistry journals, reference sources, and books which are housed in a modern facility staffed by professional librarians and several assistants. Reference service is also provided by graduate students enrolled in the Chemical Information Specialist program.
The Life Sciences Library in Jordan Hall is an exceptionally rich resource for students and faculty who need access to the biological and biomedical sciences literature. Approximately 750 current journal subscriptions are maintained, and the entire collection numbers over 100,000 volumes. In addition, patrons can conduct on-line literature searches on any of a large number of computer generated databases on the biological sciences literature.
