About the University Libraries 

The Ball State University Libraries is working harder than ever to serve our students, faculty, and community in a safe environment. Services and access have been reimagined to reduce contact and spaces have been reconfigured to promote physical distancing. From an increase in virtual instruction and research consultations to safe handling of circulating print and physical collections, we are meeting learners and researchers wherever they are to provide transformative information resources and experiences. 

Continuing our commitment to inclusive excellence, Bracken Library introduced new improvements to enhance the user experience including all-gender restrooms, a non-sectarian contemplation space for meditation, prayer, or quiet reflection, and a satellite location for the Writing Center where students can get assistance with their papers and projects. The Libraries is a place for everyone, and we appreciate your support as we continue welcoming our campus community to access and use our resources, spaces, technologies, and expertise to advance their learning journey.

How Your Donation Helps 

In 2022, Ball State University Libraries will contribute funds raised on One Ball State Day to the ongoing improvement of library spaces and resources to accommodate our students’ rapidly-evolving academic needs.

The University Libraries is continually developing state-of-the-art collaborative learning environments with access to dynamic scholarly resources and digital tools and technologies where students engage with innovative librarians and experts to research, learn, exchange ideas, communicate academically, and publish scholarship.  

Your support will help Ball State University Libraries continue to develop spaces that are accessible, sustainable, and equipped to advance the work of our diverse, ambitious, and innovative campus community.
