From the Archives: Digitizing MC Student Life

As part of Hewes Library's ongoing digitization efforts, librarians and students worked together over the 2012-2013 school year to scan and make portions of the MC Archives Student Life Collection available online.  History Department Instructor and Technical Services Librarian, Lynn Daw supervised student Olivia Haines on a yearlong project that assessed, scaned, and cataloged scrapbooks from the Student Life Collection. 

The first items in the collection are scrapbooks from MC students Grace Acheson Rogers, Lois Glass, and Luella Beveridge.  The scrapbooks are part of the collection that serves to reflect campus life through the eyes of Monmouth College students over the past 160 years.
Photographs, scrapbooks, documents, and memorabilia record the activities of individual students as well as various clubs, groups, and campus organizations. These objects continue to display the traditions and culture of a small, private, midwestern liberal arts campus and its vibrant youth.
Watch the Monmouth College Archives or the Hewes Library blog for future updates to the collection.
