McCain Library Archives and Special Collections is pleased to announce that all Agnes Scott College student newspapers from 1930-31 through 1993-94 have been digitized with the help of the Lyrasis Mass Digitization Collaborative and are now available online. They can be accessed from the library homepage (http://www.agnesscott.edu/library/) by clicking on the Archives and Special Collections left side navigation link (click on the LibGuide’s “online collections” tab, then “student newspapers”) or directly at http://bit.ly/1tE9VaP. Select a year, click “read online” on the left side of the screen, and a search box appears in the top right corner to allow keyword searching inside that document, or you may use the arrows to “flip” through the pages.
If you have wondered what students did or thought about current events during these years, it just got much easier to find out! A fitting addition to the 125th anniversary celebrations of the college, the newspapers will be a tremendous resource for student research, and should also facilitate alumnae reminiscences, reunion planning, and just plain fun! Note that alumnae magazines, the college catalogs from years past, ASC yearbooks and more are also collected at this site in electronic format. Contact Marianne Bradley, Archives Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions.
