Georgia State University Library is pleased to announce the completion of a very large and very important project. The Digital Projects Unit, working closely with Special Collections and Archives, has completed the digitization of The Signal, Georgia State University’s student newspaper. The digital collection includes The Signal’s previous incarnations The Technite, The Evening Signal, and The Junior Collegiate. The earliest issues were published in 1926.
This project began in October 2012. In about 20 total months of work, the entirety of the run held in the University Archives, 2,135 issues (34,456 pages), has been scanned, described with metadata, and uploaded to the Library’s Digital Collections for public viewing. Digital Projects will continue to upload issues periodically to keep the collection up-to-date.
