Grant awarded to digitize PSU yearbooks
PLATTSBURGH — SUNY Plattsburgh’s Feinberg Library has been awarded a $5,520 grant by the Northern New York Library Network to digitize the college’s yearbooks.
The Special Collections Department of the library has, in its collection, the yearbooks from 1914 through 2012. There are 92 in total, as none were published in 1924, 2001 or 2003 through 2007.
The college yearbooks are one of the most often used collections in the library’s repository, a press release said.
After the project is completed, the yearbooks will become part of the New York Heritage (www.nyheritage.org) online collection, of which the Library Network is a contributing partner.
Works currently available on the New York Heritage site through Special Collections include: the Plattsburgh Barracks, Plattsburgh Normal School, an 1902 Sanborn Insurance Map of Plattsburgh and the Mill Whistle. The college’s student newspaper, Cardinal Points, 1940 through 2006, is also accessible there and on the Northern New York Historical Newspapers website: http://news.nnyln.net.
