Central College has partnered with Advantage Preservation to preserve more than 125 years of history through its student newspaper and yearbook. The original copies had begun to crumble, but the publications are now digitally available to readers anywhere.

Read all about it here.

From the article:

Central’s alumni office partnered with Advantage Companies in Cedar Rapids to complete the digitization project, supported by grants and gifts from the State of Iowa Historical Research Development Program, MidWestOne Foundation, Geisler Library, Central College Student Senate and Central alumni.

The publications date back to 1876 (The Ray student newspaper) and 1907 (The Pelican yearbook).
