Debut of the Green River Digital Archives – “The Current” Student Newspaper
The Holman Library announces the debut of the Green River College Digital Archives- ''The Current'' Student Newspaper.
Since last summer a dedicated team of librarians and student help desk staff has been working diligently on digitizing and making publicly accessible and searchable archived issues of ''The Current," the Green River College student newspaper. Much gratitude to those colleagues who have helped preserve an important piece of Green River history.
Currently in the archive are 300 digitized issues, starting with the first issue in 1965, that can be browsed or searched by keyword. The newspaper archive is a work-in-progress as librarians are still in the process of adding new digitized issues, so look for it to grow in the coming months.
The hope is that this digital newspaper archive will serve not only as a historical record for the College and for the 50th Anniversary celebration, but can be used as an instructional tool that offers a perspective on local history and a voice to the issues and events central to the lives of students, staff and faculty.
