About This Site

The MDPI Internal Content Access instance of Avalon Media System is supported by the Indiana University Libraries to provide access for collection management staff within IU to audio and video items digitized through the Media Digitization and Preservation Initiative (MDPI).

For public and IU student/faculty/staff access to audio and video collections, including those digitized as part of MDPI, please visit Media Collections Online.

If you're off-campus, you'll need to be connected to the IU VPN to access these sites.
