How to Make a Purchase

Purchases may be made via a visit to our office.  The IHB Book shop accepts cash, check, and major credit cards. 

You may also order by telephone (317-232-2535), fax (317-232-1659), or e-mail (  For phone and web orders: for security reasons, credit cards cannot be accepted via email, but can be processed over the phone. Paying by check?  An invoice will be enclosed with your order. Please remit payment by check upon receipt.

All orders placed via email or telephone must meet a $5.00 purchase minimum. This excludes shipping and handling fees.

If you have a tax exempt number, include that with your order. All sales are final. Prices cannot be guaranteed and some publications are in limited supply. 


Effective November 1, 2014, the IHB Book Shop will phase in a new Loyalty Program to serve customers better. The program will replace some elements of our current discount schedule, with some exceptions. Joining the program is easy:  you only need to provide IHB with your name and email address and join our mailing list.

Loyalty Program Member Perks:

  • Receive a 10% discount on all regular-priced items
  • Accumulate Points that can be redeemed for additional discounts
  • Receive special discounts on select seasonal and holiday items

Current discounts that will remain unchanged:

  • State Employees - 20%
  • Resale Customers (gift shops, museum stores, and other vendors) - 20%
  • IHB Personnel, including county historians, ILHB members, and IHB volunteers - 25%
  • Libraries and other educational, historical, and cultural organizations (not for resale) - 25%

Note: Discounts and the Loyalty Program cannot be "stacked," but all are welcome to join our mailing list.  Our staff will work with you to apply the best discount based on your eligibility.
