Tour of the Indiana Historical Society

This past Saturday SAA-SC headed up to Indianapolis for a tour of the gorgeous Indiana Historical Society. Not only did we have Bloomington SLIS students in attendance, but we were also joined by several IUPUI SLIS students. We were lucky enough to get a peek into all sorts of places visitors usually don’t get to see, like the areas for conservation, processing, the stacks, and even a fabulous staff elevator whose walls were magnets plastered with the Ryan Gosling “hey girl” meme! A wonderful reference librarian also showcased some items from the archival collections and we had some time left over before the building closed to see some of the exhibits. Afterwards we ventured to the nearby Creation Cafe for dinner. All in all, it was a lovely day!
