Northwestern Alumni Publications Now Available Online

“One of the major sources of Northwestern news is now available online thanks to a large digitization initiative at Northwestern University Libraries. All Northwestern alumni publications published between 1903 and 1987 are now viewable in HathiTrust, a digital collection of millions of titles digitized from libraries around the world.   This collection of the university’s official alumni publications is fully text searchable, making research easy for historians, alumni and genealogists. Previously, these publications were available only in physical form in University Archives. The index for these publications was far from complete, however, and without a precise date to go by, researchers could face a long and frustrating hunt.” (via Northwestern University Library)
