  • Indiana Historical Bureau

    The Indiana Historical Bureau evolved from the Indiana Historical Commission, which was established in 1915. This organization offers publications and programs relevant to the history of Indiana and provides ample opportunities to educate the public about Indiana's relations with the rest of the nation and the world. The Indiana Supreme Court, whose Courts in the Classroom project provides courts related educational materials, has collaborated with the Indiana Historical Bureau on the Road to Indiana Statehood project. Together, with University Library, these organizations have worked to make original materials relating to Indiana's constitutional history available online.

  • Indiana State Archives

    The Indiana State Archives is the official repository of Indiana government records of permanent historical and legal significance. It principally contains records generated by state government and state agencies, but also holds many county and local government records. Records of the executive, legislative and judicial branches begin in the 1790s and include papers of every governor; bills, acts and reports of the General Assembly; and proceedings of both the supreme and appellate courts. The lives of Indiana citizens are recorded in the many ways they intersect with government including military service, naturalization procedures, the state land office and state institutions. IUPUI University Library has collaborated with the Indiana State Archives to digitize the telegraph correspondence of Governor Oliver P. Morton, governor during the American Civil War (1861-1865).
