Online Access

IU Archives Online

Archives online is a portal for accessing archival finding aids of Special Collections and Archives at Indiana University Bloomington and from other institutions around the state of Indiana. Descriptions of most archival collection items do not appear in IU CAT (IU's online catalog). Archives Online offers access to detailed collection guides to assist you in determining the content of a collection and whether it will fulfill your research needs.

IU Media Collections Online

Media Collections Online showcases digitized and born-digital time-based audio and video from IU collections. As AAAMC media collections are digitized by the MDPI project, the digitized content will become available on the Media Collections Online site. Some content will become fully open to the public, while other content will remain restricted due to copyright restrictions or other concerns. Some restricted items may be available to researchers through secure online streaming. To determine if a restricted media item has been digitized and made available online, please contact the AAAMC staff for assistance.

Media Collections Online is also a great way for course instructors to use streaming content for teaching. Please contact the AAAMC if you would like to use media from our collections in your course. We are happy to help set up access to specific content for an individual course.
