Welcome to IUPUI's University Library's Seed Library.

The following pages have information about the UL's Seed Library, how to get free seeds, and resources on seed collection. 

About Seed Library 

The IUPUI University Library Seed library is a collection of heirloom, open-pollinated, non-GMO herb seeds that any user with a Crimson Card; Indiana resident with an IU Libraries Borrower Card or IUPUI University Library Borrower's Card can borrow (IUPUI faculty, IUPUI staff, IUPUI students, Marion County residents and IU affiliates) to place at home for their personal use.

The seed library will offer herb seeds in year one, will expand to include other types of seeds in the future.

We currently have bouquet dill, broadleaf sage, common chives, emily basil, giant of Italy parsley, rosy rosemary or vulgare oregano.

The Seed Library is possible through a Greening Grant from the IUPUI Office of Sustainability.
