Lebanon Valley College recently unveiled the new online LVC Archives. Archival material from Bishop Library’s print collection – yearbooks , course catalogs, and the Valley magazine – have been digitized and are now available online.
The Archives of Lebanon Valley College, located at Bishop Library, chronicles more than 145 years of the College's history through documents, films, photographs, publications, sound recordings, and videos. The Archives also contains the College's special collections and faculty publications.
The collection presented online features three College publications: course catalogs (1866-2010), The Valley, a semi-annual magazine for alumni and friends of the College (1984-2006), and the College yearbook, The Bizarre (1899-1902, 1904-1915)/ Quittapahilla (1916-2007).
Use the online LVC archives to explore LVC’s history from the very beginning; view important events, people and places; reminisce about your college days; find a favorite friend, colleague or teacher; and much more. Each document is searchable and can be viewed online or downloaded in various formats, such as PDF, EPUB and KINDLE.
The project to digitize these materials was made possible through the LYRASIS Mass Digitization Collaborative – a Sloan Foundation grant-subsidized program for libraries and cultural institutions. The Collaborative partnered with Internet Archive to scan the items cover-to-cover and in full color where possible.
A link to the online LVC Archives is located on the library’s new website under “Find” or you can go directly to www.lvc.edu/archives.
The Archives, located on the ground floor of Bishop Library, is managed and maintained by library staff. Access to the Archives is by appointment only.
If you have questions or wish to arrange a visit please contact Maureen Anderson, Access Services Librarian, or call 717-867-6974.
