Volume 6, No. 5

The Pearson Library recently announced the launch of a new, free-to-the-public digital archive featuring back issues of The Echo (student newspaper) and Campanile and Kairos (college yearbooks).  Currently the archive includes:

  • all fifteen volumes of Campanile (1962-1976);
  • twenty-two volumes of Kairos (1977-1999); and 
  • thirty-six volumes of The Echo.

Back issues of our award-winning literary magazine, Morning Glory, will also be added to the e-collection.

The collection is accessible online, and it may be downloaded for offline viewing using either a PC or Mac computer. This Web-based version of the CLU yearbooks and The Echoincludes zoom-in, zoom-out, full-search, and text-to-speech capabilities. Download formats include Full Text, PDF, and Kindle-compliant, allowing users to view the entire archive on a number of portable e-readers. The project was undertaken with the help of Internet Archive, a non-profit digital library. To learn more about Internet Archive browse to http://www.archive.org/ or explore the entire CLU digital collection at http://www.archive.org/details/californialutheranuniversity

CLU joins hundreds of American university libraries and thousands of libraries worldwide in providing free books and archive materials to Web users.
