The Indiana University Bookman was published irregularly from 1956 through 1988 by the Indiana University Library for the bookmen of Indiana and friends of the University. Edited by Cecil K. Byrd and William R. Cagle, seventeen issues were published. Some issues focus on a particular topic or subject such as nineteenth-century London materials in the Lilly Library (no. 12), film studies collections in the Lilly Library (no. 15), or illuminated manuscripts in the Lilly Library (no. 17), while other issues do not have a single subject focus.
