“A Special Interest Group (SIG) is a community within a larger organization with a shared interest in advancing a specific area of knowledge, learning or technology where members cooperate to affect or to produce solutions within their particular field, and may communicate, meet, and organize workshops.”
We would like to facilitate the discovering, gathering, preserving, and disseminating of historical and genealogical materials about and by the Indianapolis Public Schools, since the founding of the school system in 1853.
If you would like to be a part of and participate in this effort, please contact us or drop by the GSMC Library, 9370 E. Washington St., Indianapolis. Some of us will be members of GSMC, the sponsoring group, but membership is not required.
We encourage you to bring any IPS material you may have to show, tell, or scan. We have recently reorganized the IPS collection in the GSMC Library, and we welcome any ideas about further tactics and strategies for furthering the goals of IPS-SIG.
