IUP Libraries

We recognize the need for academic libraries to include and respect all voices, especially those that are historically and currently marginalized. We cannot fulfill our obligation to support the free exchange of ideas or make available the wealth of knowledge that we collect without proper awareness of the voices and knowledge we choose to elevate versus those we choose not to.
