Home What Middletown Read - Home "What Middletown Read" is a database and search engine built upon the circulation records of the Muncie (Indiana) Public Library from November 5, 1891 through December 3, 1902. It documents every book that every library patron borrowed during that period, with the exception of one gap from May 28, 1892 to November 5, 1894. For more details, follow the links below. This project is the result of a collaborative effort between the Muncie Public Library , the Center for Middletown Studies at Ball State University, and Ball State University Libraries. It is made possible through the financial support from the National Endowment for the Humanities , the Gladys Kreible Delmas Foundation , and the following units at Ball State University: the Office of the Provost , the College of Sciences and Humanities , the Honors College , the English Department , and the History Department.

Foreign Language Press Survey North American Indian Photographs (Newberry Library) : Home Collection Description This selection of photographs of Midwestern Indian tribes—Menominee, Ojibwa, Winnebago, Santee, Yankton, and Yantonai—is derived from a much larger collection of over 6,000 images of North American Indians in the Newberry Library's world-renowned Edward E. Ayer Collection. In collecting contemporary 19th and early 20th century photographs, Ayer sought to document Indian experience during his own lifetime. The images he assembled, mainly posed studio portraits together with some outdoor and candid scenes, provide an invaluable visual record of away of life that was rapidly changing. This digital project attempts to preserve the documentary evidence inherent in each photograph. The project was funded by an award from the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Newberry Library.

Pullman Digital Collection (Newberry Library) : Home Collection Description Founded in 1867, the Chicago-based Pullman's Palace Car Company (later Pullman Company) manufactured, owned, and operated mainly sleeping cars, and also dining and lounge cars on the nation's railroads. By 1899 when Pullman absorbed its last competitor, the Wagner Palace Car Company, it operated as a virtual monopoly. Pullman records at the Newberry Library (ca. 2,500 cubic ft.) document the firm's manufacturing and operating activities until the mid-1920's. After that date, they pertain only to the operation, service, and repair of Pullman cars. This digital selection includes images of 1,299 Pullman car drawings, ca. 1870-1969, with the bulk of the drawings created for heavyweight and lightweight cars, ca. 1906-1969. If you have further questions, feel free to contact a Reference Librarian ( or call the Library's Reference Desk at (312) 255-3506.
