The Oregon Heritage Commission has awarded a grant to the Clark Library to digitize one of the University’s most important and unique heritage resources: The Beacon. This student-run newspaper was published in print for over eight decades, from 1935 to 2016. The newspaper is a gold mine of information about the University’s history and culture, as well as a treasure trove of photos, biographical data, and articles covering major national and international events. This fifteen-month digitization project will begin in early December 2019 and will preserve the print editions of The Beacon in digital form for generations to come.
This project has been funded in part by the Oregon Heritage Commission, Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. For more information, contact Philip Vue, digital services, firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for project updates @upclarklibrary.
