Online PMC Archives Demonstration This Friday

April 12, 2011

I’ve blogged before about the history of Pennsylvania Military College and Widener that is accessible online via the Wolfgram Memorial Library’s Digital Collections. If you haven’t checked it out, you are missing a free treasure trove of stories and photos.

This Friday at 2 p.m. in the library, university archivists Jill Borin and Jan Alexander will lead a demonstration of the PMC materials that can be found with only a few keystrokes.  They will show you how to explore online exhibits of yearbooks, issues of The Dome, and photographs of campus.  You can print out and save your favorites while here, and learn how to search and print more when you get home.  (Computer experience helpful but not necessary)

“There will be lots of time for hands on searching for references to you and your classmates in yearbooks, newspapers, and for searching on any other topic of interest to you,” Alexander said.  “You will leave with detailed handouts to guide you through the searching process once home.”

The 2 p.m. session follows the PMC Alumni Chapter Kickoff in the PMC Museum at noon.   To register for these events and any of the other alumni festivities this weekend — including the kick off rally for Taking the Lead – The Campaign for Widener — visit the Alumni Weekend registration page by clicking here.
