As our users are well aware, the student newspapers provide a rich source of information about student and university life.

Kelvin Smith Library contracted with DL Consulting to complete this project. The University Archives staff and students digitized 991 issues numbering 13,283 pages. Hudson Archival digitized the remaining issues from the microfilm copies. Veridian provided article segmentation and created PDF files for each issue. While optical character recognition software was run on each issue, some errors may have occurred. No corrections to the text were made. You can become a text corrector by registering on the site.

We are excited about this new online resource provided to the university community and beyond. Please explore and enjoy. You are welcome to send feedback to archives@case.edu.
