Indiana Black Librarians Network

The Indiana Black Librarians Network (IBLN) is a statewide organization that aims to provide support to Black Librarians and para-professionals. IBLN also supports access to library services for Black people.

Our Story

The Indiana Black Librarians Network (IBLN) was organized on October 13, 2001 at the Purdue University Black Cultural Center. We’re an affiliate chapter of the Black Caucus of the American Library Association. We propose to provide an opportunity for black librarians to exchange and share ideas, collaborate on library-related projects, promote professional development activities, sponsor scholarship initiatives, serve as a network for the sharing of information between librarians and para-professionals throughout the State of Indiana, and to establish channels of communication between black librarians and para-professionals statewide.
