Explore digital collections from Tate Archives & Special Collections, Digital Commons @ IWU, and SelectedWorks. The collections include excellent research, scholarship, creative activity, and historical collections.

If you have a research or curricular related collection that you would like to have digitized, please fill out our Submit a Proposal Form.


This department offers unique collections and programs to interested members of IWU's campus and beyond. The University Archives contains historical IWU records, and Special Collections holds rare and valuable materials or items that are too fragile for the main library stacks. Class visits, independent researchers and community groups are welcome. Questions may be directed at any time to Meg Miner.
