Indianapolis Public Library

The Indianapolis Public Library is comprised of 22 individual branches that offer materials, programs, and services in support of lifelong learning, recreational, and economic interests of all Marion County citizens. Their collections include some very interesting resources representing Indiana's history, including books, local newspapers, and dense city directories (their own online collections can be found at Digital Indy). Through the Library Fund of the Indianapolis Foundation, a grant has provided IUPUI University the ability to collaborate with the Indiana State Library and the Indianapolis Public Library to digitize a collection of historically significant materials that currently have been taken out of circulation.

Online Collections: Indianapolis Sanborn Map and Baist Atlas Collection, Indianapolis City Directories, Climate Data: Indianapolis, IN 1940-2006, Indiana Plat Book Collection, Historic Indiana Atlases, Service through Sponge Cake, Indianapolis Firefighters Museum Collection, Shortridge Yearbooks, Irvington Oral Histories
