The Muncie Souvenir Booklets digital collection consists of promotional literature about the city of Muncie, Indiana ranging from the 1897 to 1924. These souvenir booklets were produced by a variety of organizations, including the Dynamo Club, Muncie Commercial Club, Commercial Publishing Company, Muncie Natural Gas Land Improvement Company, and the Central Indiana Gas Company. The pamphlets were created to promote the city as well as attract investors and industry to the area. The booklets include images of churches, schools, parks, businesses, banks, and homes.
The creation of this digital collection was part of a library student residency in the Ball State University Libraries in collaboration with the Indiana University School of Library and Information Science (Indianapolis) funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services' Career Transitions Executive Leadership Program.
