The Carleton College Gould Library and Archives announce the addition of the Algol yearbooks to its Digital Collections. Named for the variable star, Algol, and published by Carleton students, the Algol yearbooks present a unique student perspective on campus life. Text and photographs document campus events and personalities. Replete with photographs, many editions also employ prose, poetry, and illustration to tell a detailed history of the academic year. While the Algol appeared sporadically during its early years, it became an annual volume starting in 1923.
Presented in high-resolution scans, the Algols can be searched for specific people, places or events. Students, faculty, staff, and alumnae can freely access the digitized Algol at http://apps.carleton.edu/digitalcollections/algol/ where they can browse through the editions or search by keyword. Carleton College’s complete Digital Collections can be accessed at http://apps.carleton.edu/digitalcollections/. Off campus access requires login.
The Algol online is brought to you by the Digitization Team of the Gould Library and Archives, coordinated by Hsianghui Lui-Spencer. This collection was made possible by generous support from Alumni Relations and the Digital Archiving Group. For more information about the Algol online, contact the D-Team and Hsianghui at email@example.com
