Three Digital Collections in Indiana History

The University Library Center for Digital Scholarship at Indiana University-Purdue at Indianapolis offers 80 cultural heritage digital collections, among other things. Here are three of those cultural collections:

Conner Prairie Historic Clothing Collection

There are over 100 rotating 3-D images of items in the collection. You may browse the collection, or search it by garment type or era. There’s an introductory paper here by Ericka Mason Osen, former Historic Clothing Coordinator at Conner Prairie.

Indiana Historic Sites and Structures Inventory

Reports are here for 53 counties, each one of which includes lists of hundreds of historic structures and dozens of photos. The reports were done under a long-running program sponsored by the Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana.

Indiana Landmarks

Here are 294 articles on Indiana architecture, authored by Agnes McCulloch Hanna from 1928 to 1952 and published in Indianapolis newspapers. Each article is typically about one historic house or other type of building.
