About this collection

 

For the purposes of this project, I have chosen to develop a digital collection for my local public library, the Barton Rees Pogue Memorial Public Library. Though mostly comprised of newspaper issues, this digital collection also features a variety of materials, including brochures, poetry and books, photographs, and a website that features moving images. 

The digital collection highlights local history that covers the town of Upland, Taylor University, Grant County, and the state of Indiana. The collection also highlights the library's history by featuring materials about and written by Barton Rees Pogue, the library's namesake. Barton Rees Pogue, a lifelong Indiana resident, was born on February 13, 1891 and spent most of his early childhood years in Greenfield, Indiana before later moving to Indianapolis with his family. Pogue would later attend many universities throughout his academic career, including Taylor University in Upland. Pogue's career as an Indiana poet, librarian, and professor of Speech and Dramatics at Taylor University cemented his legacy in the community.

For assistance in accessing and using this digital collection, please refer to the following support materials.
