The Collection is located on the second floor of the library on the northwest wall. Be aware that the materials of the collection do not circulate, nor are the librarians available to do your research for you. The Collection is available for anyone to use, and is particularly geared for the not-for-profit organizations in Northwest Indiana and anyone interested in nonprofit organizations. The collection was created with some financial support from the Inland Steel-Ryerson Foundation in September, 1982. It was provided then, as now, to provide resources to assist the nonprofit organizations in Northwest Indiana apply for funds from donors.
