The NMSU Library has completed their digital archiving of 85 years of NMSU’s yearbooks. The NMSU Swastika and Phoenix editions can now be viewed via the NMSU Library’s webpage.
The earliest digital edition dates back to 1907 and full text and images of each year’s installment can now be seen and enjoyed online. The digitization of the yearbooks also allows for an indexed search. NMSU alumni and interested parties can now search for past NMSU students, faculty, and staff throughout the yearbooks.
“The NMSU Yearbooks digital collection is a treasure trove of university history. Alumni will especially love this, as the Library receives many requests for yearbook material. This will allow for much easier access. The name of the yearbook also carries a unique and interesting history and we are excited to provide digital access to this very important collection,” said Nathan Brown, Digital Projects Librarian.
