Programs & Services: Publications

The primary mission of the Lilly Library's publications program is to publicize, enhance access, and provide an educational focus to the Library's collections and services. This is accomplished through the creation of printed and electronic media designed to describe acquisitions and collections, promote exhibitions, and disseminate general information about the Library, its holdings and services.

These lists attempt to identify all Lilly Library catalogues, collection guides, and reports produced. Please note that a number of the publications are no longer in print and are not available for purchase. Copies are available for consultation in the Library. Selected out-of-print publications are available online in Lilly Library Publications Online.
