Many patrons live too far away or simply aren’t able to get into the Indiana Room for the information that they need. While we cannot do extensive research, we are happy to send copies for specific requests. This may be a copy of an obituary or copies of pages from a book, whatever it is that you need. We ask that patrons request no more than eight (8) items per month, as we have many people using this service*. You may request paper copies, which will be mailed to you and will cost ten cents (10¢) per page plus postage, or you may request digital copies, which will be e-mailed to you and are free of charge. If you would like to place a copy request, there are three ways to contact us:

*Copy requests are answered in the order in which they are received. It may take 1-2 weeks to fill your request, depending on the volume and difficulty of your request, and the number of requests ahead of yours in the queue.
