EKU libraries puts old newspapers, yearbooks online

“For alumni, current and former faculty and staff and others with a connection to Eastern Kentucky University, memory lane is now just a mouse click away. EKU Libraries boasts a growing digital repository of the student-produced campus newspaper, The Eastern Progress, as well as the campus yearbook, the Milestone, all easily viewable, fully searchable and free, by anyone with Internet access. While digital content for the Progress has always been available for issues published since 2009, generous donations from members of The Friends of EKU Libraries have enabled the digitization of all extant copies of the Eastern Progress from 1922 to 1963. It is expected that the digital collection will expand to 1975 by mid-March, with the goal of collecting the funding needed to digitize the remaining collection this year.”
