How do I change information displayed in the online IU Address Book and the Global Address List?
At Indiana University, the information displayed in the online IU Address Book and the Global Address List (GAL) is provided by several university departments, and maintained and cross-checked by several UITS systems. Therefore, the specific instructions for changing information in the IU Address Book and the GAL can vary depending on what you want to change. Additionally, certain fields in the online IU Address Book are controlled by particular offices within the university; only those offices can change them.
See the appropriate section below for contacting the correct information provider.
