Calumet Regional Archives Turns 25 in 1998
"Celebrate in '98" is the theme for the silver anniversary year of IUN's Calumet Regional Archives, located on the library's third floor. Over the past twenty-five years, the Archives has collected, preserved, and made available thousands of historical records documenting the growth and development of Northwest Indiana.
Throughout this year, the Archives will produce exhibits and newsletters highlighting portions of the collection. Please stop by when you have an opportunity.
