Three weeks after unveiling the new Indiana Memory, www.indianamemory.org, the Indiana State Library has now introduced the website’s new Indiana Newspapers platform. Clicking on the “Indiana Newspapers” icon on Indiana Memory will take you to all of the newspapers digitized as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program.

This collection contains 14,214 issues comprising 95,455 pages and is continually growing. Many of these titles are also available at the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America website. IDHNP provides free, online access to high quality digital images of Indiana’s historic newspapers, links to online resources and assistance to other organizations in making their collections accessible.

This online resource is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities. This grant enabled the Indiana State Library, in partnership with the Indiana Historical Society, to digitize Indiana newspapers for the National Digital Newspaper Program.

“We are moving ahead with digitizing another 100,000 newspaper pages as a continuation of the NEH grant,” said Chandler Lighty, Historic Newspaper Digitization Program Manager. “Over the coming months and year, historic digitized newspapers from South Bend, Evansville, and Vincennes will be available.”

State police to collect unwanted prescriptions PDF Print E-mail

On Saturday, April 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Indiana State Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its eighth opportunity in three years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs.

Bring your medications for disposal to any State Police Post statewide, except for the Toll Road Post, for this free and anonymous service, no questions asked.

The main Drug Take Back Event will be one of the few days of the year where residents can drop off expired or unused prescription medications without having to wonder whether they will be accepted—even controlled substances, such as ADHD drugs are taken. This program will not accept new or used needles. The collection is intended for liquid and pill medications only.

Last fall, ISP collected 1,451 pounds of drugs at the Oct. 26, Drug Take Back Event. On the same day, 324 tons of prescription drugs were taken in at over 5,683 sites operated by the DEA and its thousands of state and local law enforcement partners nationwide.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.

Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines— flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash— both pose potential safety and health hazards.
