Laboratory Animal Resources (LAR) oversees 6 core animal facilities across the campus of Indiana University Bloomington. At each facility, there are cages, racks, wire bar lids to hold food, water bottles, lids, food, bedding, enrichment, cage washers and personnel to provide housing for fish, frogs, mice, rats, hamsters, voles, rabbits and birds. Investigators requesting space to house their animals are directed to the closest facility to their office or lab and a facility that has the equipment to house their animals. LAR usually has equipment on hand to meet these requests or will need to purchase additional equipment depending on requests to house animals. LAR is responsible for washing cages and housing rooms, and maintaining the facilities. Almost all of the equipment used by PI’s for studies is owned by their department and scheduling of use of equipment used by PI’s for studies is purchased by the department and scheduled for use through arrangements made at the department level. LAR will sometimes provide minor equipment if needed for studies. Use of the facilities is based on the percentage of animals occupying the facilities for the period of time the PI needs to perform their studies.
