About this collection

The Oberlin College Student Publications Collection held in the College Archives encompasses 197 print titles, dating from 1858 to the present. Of the total, 5 titles date from the 19th century. The twentieth century is represented in 142 titles. In the 2000s and 2010s, 50 different titles were published. While some publications enjoyed a very long run, many of them were short-lived. 

 

Here you will find a sample cover and detailed description for each of these titles. We invite you to visit the Archives to explore them in print form. Some current student publications offer back or current issues online from their websites or Issuu sites. These are noted in the descriptions.

This electronic access project involved the first content analysis of the student publications at Oberlin College. In 2018, Kira Zimmerman (OC 2019), Archives Student Assistant, analyzed the publications and wrote descriptions and assigned genre terms and tags. Others involved in the project were Becky Sparagowski, Archives and Special Collections Intern, and Anne Cuyler Salsich, Associate Archivist. Thanks also to Lindsey Felice for the banner design, and to Megan Mitchell, Digital Initiatives Librarian. 

 

The Oberlin College Student Publications Digital Collection launched in March 2019. Copyright © 2019, Oberlin College Archives.
