IU Southeast Library of Things

The Library of Things is a collection of useful non-book items that circulate to students, staff, and faculty. From tools to cleaning supplies and kitchen equipment, the Library of Things expands the boundaries of traditional library materials to meet the diverse needs of our campus community.

How to Get Items

All Library of Things items can be checked out for at least 7 days at the Service Desk, and can be renewed. (Webcams can be checked out for 120 days.) Please return LoT items (cleaned and dry) to the Service Desk when done using.

Cleaning items before use is recommended.
