Friends of Lincoln Collection Launches New Website

Share:

Friends of the Lincoln Collection of Indiana, Inc., has launched a new
website serving as a gateway to thousands of digitized Lincoln era
letters, photographs, newspapers, books and other items from the Lincoln
Financial Foundation Collection. Also, it will soon post searchable
archives from the 1,900+ issues of Lincoln Lore. First published
in 1929, Lincoln Lore is a nationally recognized magazine for
scholarly articles, interviews, book reviews, and announcements of local
and national Lincoln-related programs and events. The resource,
currently published four times a year, is intended for scholars,
teachers and students of all ages.

The Friends' newly launched website, www.friendsofthelincolncollection.org,
will offer other items of interest, including links to Collection
items displayed in the Fine Book Room of the Allen County Public
Library; online exhibits; dozens of viewable Lincoln presentations at
the library; and educational support from resident Lincoln historians.

"Our new website is an engaging resource for Lincoln scholars and
students," said Randy Brown, board chairman of Friends of the Lincoln
Collection, "and we look forward to completing the archiving of Lincoln
Lore
as an additional enhancement."
