The Ball State University Libraries' Drawings and Documents Archive is a unique resource dedicated to preserving the history of Indiana's built environment. Our collections contain over 120,000 original architectural drawings, landscape plans, blueprints, photographs, models, and building remnants, open to the general public for research, that tell the stories of Indiana’s sites and structures.

The archive supports research by students, faculty, and general researchers by providing reference services, instructional sessions, and scanning services.
