A Brand New Look for Widener’s Online Archives

June 13, 2011

Browsing online in the Wolfgram Memorial Library’s Digital Collections is a newly enhanced experience.  A recent upgrade to the Widener University Archives’ web interface makes it easier to locate historical information on the university and its predecessor institutions, including Pennsylvania Military College and Pennsylvania Military Academy.

There are many exhibit categories you can browse, including alumni, athletics, buildings (including the 1883 Old Main drawing above), caps worn by PMA and PMC cadets, Chester history, school yearbooks and newspapers.

When opening a specific exhibit, be sure to click on the “Browse All” button to view it.  You can contact library archivists at archives@mail.widener.edu if you have any questions about using the site.

Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the university’s vast history — you don’t even have to leave the house.
