What is certain is that there is additional income to be gained by becoming part of the “sharing” economy. Currently, Airbnb has more than 6 million listings around the world – from Moscow and St. Petersburg to other corners of the globe. Homeowners, young and old, see making money with airbnb the financial value of renting out a spare room or an entire apartment when they go on vacation. Before you turn your primary home into an Airbnb rental apartment for additional rental income, you might want to think about the pros and cons and how it will affect your daily life. Here’s our guide to the ins and outs of short-term rentals for your main property on Airbnb

Future Directions

During the 2015-2016 Academic year, InULA would like to explore way to strengthen our organization and create a sustainable plan to help effectively meet our mission to promote excellence in library service and provide opportunities for continuing education and professional growth.  Throughout this year we will have a number of opportunities to discuss future directions for InULA to grow and support IU Libraries. In an effort to get the conversation started, the Board of Directions have three questions we’d like your help exploring. Please share your thoughts by emailing us at inula@indiana.edu or ccwray@indiana.edu.

Question 1: Regular Membership in InULA is currently only open to tenure track librarians.  Should InULA expand regular membership to include other library workers?

Question 2:  How do you envision InULA fulfilling purpose in the future?  

Question 3: How do you think we could better support all Indiana University libraries?
