Historical-Archival Programs of the Indiana State Library, Indiana Historical Bureau, and the Indiana Historical Society; A Report With Recommendations.
Ham, F. Gerald
As initially conceived, this survey, one of five reports focusing on present activities and structure of the Indiana State Library was to deal with the relationships and possible overlap between the functions of the State Library and the Historical Bureau. However, it was immediately apparent that the basic problem was less one of overlapping function between these two "co-ordinate" agencies then one of coordination and direction of the State Library's historical-archival activities and functions. Intimately involved in the problem of coordinating historical activities is the privately supported Indiana Historical Society whose programs, in some measure, parallal and overlap activities of the State Library and the Historical Bureau. While this study focuses most directly on the State Library's historical and archival activities, it deals with the programs of the Historical Bureau and the Indiana Historical Society as they affect the welfare of a well-coordinated and broadly-based historical agency program in Indiana. The study states its sources of information, gathered by personal interviews and explains the organization and status of archival and historical programs in Indiana. A summary of findings and recommendations are included. (Other reports in this series are available as ED 044 131 through 044 145.) (Author/SG)
