Knowledge Inspires Transformation

The mission of the Butler University Libraries is to advance the academic mission of the University by providing expertise, resources, and services that stimulate learning. Central to our mission is preparing undergraduate students to navigate a complex information system. 

The libraries also have a responsibility to support teaching and scholarship, to promote the ethical use and creation of information, and to preserve the intellectual heritage that is at the core of the University. 

There are two libraries on campus. The Irwin Library includes the business; education and curriculum resources; liberal arts; and performing and fine arts collections. The Ruth Lilly Science Library houses materials supporting studies in the fields of computer, mathematics, pharmaceutical, physical, biological and behavioral sciences. The combined holdings of the Butler Libraries include access to approximately 300,000 e-books, 200 databases, 35,000 electronic journal subscriptions, 235,000 print materials, 16,000 audiovisual materials, and more than 17,000 musical scores. Support the future of the Butler Libraries and our collections by making a gift today
