Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer at the Indiana Archives

The volunteer experience at the Archives is rewarding and enjoyable.

Since the volunteer program began in 1991, volunteers have donated over 100,000 hours to the Indiana Archives! Volunteers have been the driving force behind the Indiana Digital Archives

If you are interested in volunteering at the Indiana Archives, we offer a variety of projects from which to choose, flexible hours, an ability to volunteer from home with internet access or a friendly working environment, and free parking at the Archives. In person projects vary widely. Some involve data entry, but many do not require any computer expertise. There are several collections that need to be preserved by simply removing them from their acidic folders and boxes and placing them in acid free archival materials. To volunteer in person, call 317-591-5222 or email arc@iara.in.gov.
