News from the Bryn Mawr College Archives

Primary Source Media of Woodbridge, Connecticut, has completed microfilming the Bryn Mawr/Haverford Bi-College News and Bryn Mawr Now for the years 1980 through 1995. This will add to our collection of Bryn Mawr publications available on microfilm and ensure that information originally printed on newsprint continues to be available long after the fragile newsprint crumbles. Funds for this much needed special project were generously donated by Daniel and Joanna Semel Rose '52.

The College's student publications have been an excellent source of information on college life and the many notable events that have occurred on campus. They are frequently used by on-campus and visiting researchers.

One service copy will be housed in the microfilm room of Canaday Library; a second service copy will be housed together with the original negative microfilms in the College Archives.

Researchers are reminded that thanks to the efforts of Catherine (Cassie) Pabst, formerly Head of Acquisitions, there is a subject index to the College News for the years 1914-1949. Cassie has worked for many years on a volunteer basis to compile a unique and user-friendly index that can save a great deal of "browsing" for the researcher.
