Bicentennial Archives Development and Deployment Project

Enhancing University Archives

This project allows campuses to evaluate current archival holdings of administrative, faculty, and student records and to develop plans for supplementing current holdings with, where available, data in IU production and research databases (e.g. the IUNI Web of Science publication data), and with public contributions and campus acquisitions as necessary.

In developing campus collections, librarians and archivists are combining collection development with curricular innovations that can utilize these new holdings.

Existing and new archival materials are deployed in new engaging and publicly accessible ways. This includes new:

  • Directories of former students, faculty, and staff
  • Exhibits in spaces around the university
  • Walking tours of each campus
