Technical Difficulties

The ISU Library is experiencing access problems from off campus to online resources. We are working to resolve the problem as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience.

19th century Terre Haute newspapers to be digitized

Vigo County Public Library board members on Monday night voted to accept a grant of $19,866 to place 80 years of microfilm newspaper archives in a digital format, meaning it will be available on the Internet in just a few months.

The newspapers to be “digitized” will include multiple Terre Haute papers dated from 1825 to 1905, said Kristi Howe, library director.

Once the work is completed, the newspapers will be available on the VCPL, Wabash Valley Visions and Voices and the Indiana Memories websites.

Some of the newspapers to be included in the digitization include the

  • New Harmony Gazette, 1825-1826
  • Terre Haute Weekly Express, 1868-1872
  • Terre Haute Gazette Daily, 1870-1874
  • Terre Haute Daily News, 1880-1891
  • Saturday Evening Mail
  • Terre Haute Daily Union
  • Terre Haute Daily Tribune

New Library Homepage (Beta)

A link to the beta library homepage is displayed on the current library homepage (since May 19). We are still working out some bugs but the structure is static.  Currently the footer is made up of links to pages that receive high hit counts, but that may change over time. Our next step is to work on mobile development of the library homepage.

Once the mobile homepage is functional we will begin work on the second level pages.

Our pages will eventually reflect the university’s new identity standards and guidelines. Throughout the next year we will use the Drupal theme the university will supply to populate a Drupal site that we will migrate to next summer.
