National Horse Thief Detective Association
Archivist Beth Swift and Metadata Librarian Brian McCafferty have completed processing a collection of digital images pertaining to the National Horse Thief Detective Association housed in the Robert T. Ramsay Jr. Archival Center. "Included are proceedings of twenty-six annual NHTDA meetings held between 1878 and 1932, minutes of meetings and ledgers of the Waynetown Detective Company from 1866 to 1934, as well as constitutions, by-laws, and articles of association of local chapters, miscellaneous documents, personal accounts, letters, newspaper articles, two essays on NHTDA and vigilantism in Indiana, and other related items." See the Wabash College collection or learn more about the National Horse Thief Detective Association.
Since 2006, the MISO (Measuring Information Service Outcomes) Survey has been a resource for liberal arts colleges to measure how faculty, students, and staff view library and computing services. In 2012, Wabash IT Services and Lilly Library offered the MISO survey for the first time. One clear finding from the 2014 MISO survey is that faculty and students alike rate three items highly in terms of importance and satisfaction: Databases, Access to online resources from off-campus, and Overall Library Services.
