Significant Projects

The Community Project facilitated local learning communities of public libraries, museums, and schools by serving as a gateway to local cultural heritage resources. Two of the projects significant achievements were the Hoosier Artist Project and the Works Progress Administration (WPA) Murals Project, which focused on providing Internet access to local cultural heritage information.

A Summer Teachers Institute and five workshops designed to help educators, librarians, and staff members learn how to use the project resources were offered throughout the project. Teachers who attended the Summer Institute received mini grants to develop Instructional Units based on resources that were made available via the project website. These instructional units are available below for educators and librarians to incorporate into their curriculum and programs.
