Digitizing The Dome: All Issues Now Online

December 8, 2010

Every issue of The Dome, Widener’s student newspaper, went online this week.   University archivists Jill Borin and Jan Alexander and junior Bob Forsythe, an accounting major from Philadelphia,  as well as two other  students worked for a year and a half on the project to scan all 1,053 issues of the newspaper produced from 1947 through 2008.  Each issue is available in a PDF and can be searched with keywords.

You also can find the newest issue of The Dome on the web.   Now published once a semester, it made its debut this month as an online magazine.  In addition to The Dome, you can read frequent updates on PrideWire, Widener University’s student-run news outlet that covers the happenings on and around the Chester campus.
