In its 116 year existence, UConn’s student newspaper has transitioned
from a four-page black and white monthly publication into the highest
circulation college daily newspaper in Connecticut. Now its readership
is about to get another boost when the UConn Libraries digitizes issues
dating back to its origins and places them online.
“We get requests about the Daily Campus
on a fairly regular
basis,” says University Archivist Betsy Pittman, a proponent of the
initiative, which began in the spring of 2012.
