|INDIANAPOLIS (October 18, 2021) — Crossroads Document Services, a division of Crossroads Industrial Services, recently partnered with La Voz de Indiana and The Indianapolis Public Library on the launch of a new La Voz digital collection.
On October 15, representatives of all three organizations gathered at the La Voz de Indiana offices, located at 2911 W. Washington Street, for a luncheon to celebrate the launch.
Crossroads Document Services scanned 424 editions — roughly 16,340 pages — of La Voz for The Indianapolis Public Library. La Voz de Indiana is the newest addition to The Library’s Digital Indy archive, which includes collections of documents, images, videos and recordings that highlight local history.
“To be able to see all of our hard work is beyond words right now,” said La Voz Vice President Jose A. Gonzalez-Parodi. “It’s been a long, hard road, and to be able to see someone else take the time to upload each edition, for all to see and view, it’s a powerful look back over 21 years of hard work, sweat and tears and how far we have come. It is a reminder to us of what we do and why we do it.”
Founded in 1999, La Voz de Indiana Bilingual Newspaper is published in both Spanish and English, embracing diversity by promoting understanding and improving communication between people.
The collection was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, administered by the Indiana State Library. It is part of the Indiana Memory program, a digital library that enables access to Indiana’s unique cultural and historical heritage through a variety of digital formats and free distribution over the Internet.
