Major Cuts Proposed for Indiana State Library Budget, Remotely Accessible Databases and Genealogy Department Targeted
With a more than $2 billion state budget surplus, the 2015 state budget proposed by the administration provides for a 25% cut to the Indiana State Library’s funding. This proposal specifically targets cuts against state-wide access to informational and educational databases and would eliminate the Genealogy Department. It would reduce the Library staff by 10%.
