Cunningham Memorial Library | Your Campus Living Room
ISU's Special Collections Department houses 13 major collections and several repositories that contain books, manuscripts, pamphlets, prints, photographs, maps, and memorabilia. We are open to the public.
University Archives serves as the designated repository for material of historic, legal or administrative value. We collect, preserve, and make accessible a wide variety of material ranging from ISUs foundation in 1865 to the present.
Containing approximately 4,000 works of art, the Permanent Art Collection is available to classes and the public any time through a searchable online database or in person upon request.

Digital Initiatives includes the Digitization Laboratory, where we digitize photos, documents, slides, as well as audio and visual items. We are also the home of Sycamore Scholars and Wabash Valley Visions and Voices Digital Memory Project.
