Accessing Student Newspapers
The student body at Brigham Young University has produced a range of newspapers, starting with the BYA Student in 1891. While the library has worked to scan these publications for easy online access, system limitations have reduced searchability of the text. To help improve access, the University Archives has been developing a keyword index of text from these student publications–available at https://atom.lib.byu.edu/byunews/. Currently, the index includes content from between 1891 and 1957. Additional years will be added in the coming months.
The index will support searches for university history projects, or for genealogical research. Entries are linked to the scanned copy of the original newspaper.
