The ISU Bulletins and Catalogs describe the academic programs and requirements of entry to ISU. The publications list the required student fees for the upcoming academic year as well as abbreviated codes of student conduct. The earliest bulletins and catalogs also contain the names of students in attendance for the previous academic year as well as student attendance statistics. Lastly, the bulletins and catalogs print the names of the ISU's faculty and their associated department or college.
The Course Catalog Collection currently consists of all catalogs from 1870 to 1992 in addition to various bulletins, course specific catalogs, and view or song bulletins from sporadic years. Post-1992 catalogs will be added as they become digitized and made available.
