Indiana Memory celebrates 5 years
A reception celebrating the five-year anniversary of Indiana Memory will be held in Indianapolis this Friday from 1:00 PM until 3:00 PM (EST). The Indiana State Library will host the event featuring the unveiling of the new web interface, promising faster access to this wealth of materials centered on over 200 years of Indiana history.
Come learn about how Indiana Memory is increasing participation from local museums and historical societies and providing digital access to historic Indiana newspapers. Representatives from Indiana Memory partner libraries and organizations have been invited to speak about their individual digitization programs.
Indiana Memory is a collaborative digital library site providing access to over 350,000 historical and cultural items drawn from 107 contributing organizations around the state. Indiana Memory seeks to support and enhance education and scholarship for all Hoosiers for increased understanding of Indiana's past and its role in preparing for Indiana's future. The Jasper County Public Library's General Robert H. Milroy Collection is part of this state collection.
Representatives from other libraries have been invited to speak about their individual digitization programs. The reception is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
