Lilly Library Manuscript Collections


The Lilly Library Readers Services Dept. mss., ca. 1950- 1978, consist of the correspondence and office files of that Department and of Geneva Warner, 1919- , Special Collections librarian, later Head of Readers Services. Several of the files date from the Indiana University Library's Special Collections era, prior to the existence of the Lilly Library. In Spring 1978, the Readers Services Department was merged with Technical services to form a single Book Department. Geneva Warner retired July 1, 1978, at which time this material was sorted and transferred to the Public Services Department for retention as part of the Lilly Library Archives.
