During the first-ever IndyPL Library Card Drive on Butler’s campus, 50 Butler patrons were able to apply for and get, or renew, a card for the Indianapolis Public Library. Thank you to those who braved the weather and stopped by to help us celebrate National Library Week in this partnership with our local public library, and congratulations on your new library cards!
For those who were unable to stop by during the event, you may still get a library card for IndyPL, which will give you access to the more than 2 million titles in their collection, including ebooks and song downloads. Simply stop by an IndyPL branch with your student ID and a piece of mail verifying your campus address to get a card, and start taking advantage of the materials and resources available through your Indianapolis community!
The Butler University Libraries are partnering with the IndyPL College Avenue branch library to host a library card drive on Butler’s campus. Students living on campus or in Marion County qualify for a library card through the Indianapolis Public Library.

The National Library of Medicine recently released several hundred historical eBooks. You can access them at this link.
“Medicine in the Americas is a digital library project that makes freely available original works demonstrating the evolution of American medicine from colonial frontier outposts of the 17th century to research hospitals of the 20th century.”
One question that gets asked rather frequently is about whether a certain program is installed on the library computers. I’m happy to say that BOTH libraries are on I.R.’s official list of “Departmental Labs” and have all the installed programs listed on the I.R. “Lab Locations” website: http://www.butler.edu/labs/?pg=2538
I have also included this information (with a link to that same “Lab Locations” page) in the FAQ list on our website.
