Home > Libraries


The libraries are places for residents to study or check out books, CDs, and movies (VHS and DVD). Movies, Music, and More (MMM) lends CDs, DVDs, or VHS. Search for materials on IU's online library catalog, IUCAT.

All residents and employees are eligible to borrow materials free of charge from the libraries and MMM locations. When borrowing materials, residents must present a valid IUID and may be asked to provide their current campus address and telephone number, or show a room key or key card. All borrowers are implicitly bound by the RPS Library policies and agree to pay any fines incurred on materials associated with their campus ID number.

All materials are stocked based on patron suggestions. Please give us your ideas for new materials at any location.
