Let’s get digital: Library facility digitizes student newspaper collections (The Beacon)

The Beacon (University of Portland): Let’s get digital: Library facility digitizes student newspaper collections. “Nothing is forever, and that includes paper. As decades old student newspapers yellow and become frail, they become harder and harder to flip through. In order to preserve a history unique to the University of Portland, library faculty members took on the project of digitizing the entirety of student newspapers in UP’s history, The Columbiad and The Beacon. A year and a half after receiving a grant from the Oregon Heritage Commission, the entirety of these collections is now digitized and available through the library’s digital collections.”
