Publications
Amanda A. Hurford, Digital Initiatives Multimedia Developer, and Maren L. Read, former Archivist for Manuscript Collections, recently published an article related to their creation of the Middletown Women’s History Collection, which uses photographs, films, posters, and interviews from the different Middletown Studies projects to “document the experiences of women in Muncie, Indiana, from the 1880s through the 1930s.” This collection is the result of a Library Services and Technology Act digitization grant.
