Did you know you can listen and watch interviews with Eleanor Roosevelt?
Or watch Robert F. Kennedy give a speech in Muncie, Indiana?
Looking for artifacts or letters from important figures in American history such as Abraham Lincoln, Eugene Debs, Gus Grissom, or Amelia Earhart?
How about historical research? Are you interested in reading letters, land grants, or telegraphs logs from the Civil War?
You might say, “Well, of course, the world wide web has infinite materials.” But did you know all these things can be found in local libraries, archives and historical societies across the state?
There are more wonderful collections being made available today in ways that were not possible until now. Even just a few short years ago the most researchers, or enthusiasts, could hope was a finding aid or catalog record online. Thanks to technological advances in image software programs not only are these tools available but in many cases images of the primary sources can be uploaded. These are formatted to give an experience similar to seeing the actual item or reading the text in person.
So warm up the finger tips, grab your favorite beverage, drinks are allowed on this library trip, and take a little virtual tour that will give a glimpse of some of the larger, or more unique collections available around the corner and throughout the state.
