Changing Times

March 18, 2010

For the times, they are a changin?. So goes the Dylan tune of a while ago and so it goes with our work here at IHS. Conservators get to look at time in a in a different way examining the things of history; how and when a paper was made, the ink and such on it, the tools used to get it there, and how it all reacts to time. Our particular department has always taken a very long-term view about “things” and “time,” mostly because we preserve the mainly paper-based things in our collection maps, manuscripts, photographs. People do the weirdest things to paper with the hope of making it last a long time … anyway, that?s another blog.

IHS looks at history just about the way it always has in my estimation, but the Indiana Experience puts a whole new twist on … “things” and “time” for YOU. Every day, we get to touch, smell and peer into the things of history; and some say we have the best jobs because of it. I think we?d like a lot of people to get here and see time and things like we do … dig in, and get all the way into it! Come to the Indiana Experience and the History Center _ ’cause the times they are a changin’!
