Indiana State Historic Records Advisory Board (SHRAB)

Indiana State Historic Advisory Board (SHRAB)

In February of 2006, Governor Mitch Daniels created the Indiana State Historic Records Advisory Board, or SHRAB. Charged with being the central advisory body for historical records planning and preservation in Indiana, the SHRAB works with the Archives and Records Administration and repositories throughout the state to accomplish its task. On his first day in office, Governor Mike Pence issued Executive Order 13-13, ensuring the continuation of the Indiana SHRAB. The SHRAB is supported by an annual grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC).
