The Clark Library is pleased to announce the launch of an online UP Student Newspapers Collection. In October 2019, the library received an Oregon Heritage Grant to digitize and preserve UP’s student newspapers: The Columbiad and The Beacon. It took a year and a half to digitize the print newspapers which are housed in the University Archives. Now, eleven decades (1902-2016) consisting of 2,242 issues and over 26,000 pages are accessible through the Clark Library’s Digital Collections portal. Anyone with an Internet connection can browse the newspapers, try the keyword searching feature to look up specific people and events, or see a selection of highlighted issues including the popular April Fool’s “The Bacon” issues.
