Fabrication Resources

We believe strongly in making, and our students have excellent access to an array of digital fabrication tools. In addition, we have launched a wiki and question and answer site to help students make the most of the tools, both software and hardware, at their disposal.


Architecture Library

The Architecture Library features collections and services that support research in architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, and historic preservation. Check out what's going on in our library by visiting the Architecture Library Pinterest boards.


Drawings and Documents Archive

The Drawings + Documents Archive contains over 120,000 original architectural drawings, landscape plans, blueprints, photographs, models, and building remnants that tell the stories of Indiana’s sites and structures. Check out the Archive's new video to learn how this unique resource works, and how you can make it work for you and your projects.
