One of the interesting aspects of developing open access digital collections is the opportunity to bring new life to publications that have a unique local connection. As part of the Southwestern Ontario Digital Archive (SWODA) the library has begun to publish works delving into the history of the University of Windsor. This includes the Assumption College Purple and White paper, The Ambassador yearbooks, and other university publications. These works, dating back to 1924, are being made available online and fully searchable for the first time so take an opportunity to delve in the University of Windsor’s past! We will continue to add new items to this collection over time, so keep checking back for more or simply request up to get notified by email or RSS when new items are added. These works are available now because of the hard work and dedication of many staff members and librarians, so thank you to everyone involved!
