The UMC Library has completed a number of digitization projects. Each project has its own Web Site which has links to the individual issues of the publication and a search box that searches the individual pages as well as the full publication.
From 1910 to 1999 the school produced yearbooks, which chronicled the year’s activities, students and staff. The yearbooks not only offer a history of the faculty, staff, and students who taught, worked, and studied at the institution but they also offer an interesting history of fashion, architecture, sports, arts, and curriculum of the different eras.
The Northwest Monthly was a publication of the University of Minnesota's Northwest School of Agriculture, located at Crookston Minnesota. It began publication in December 1916. In 1943 it changed its name to Northwest School News and its publication to nine times a year. The last issue was published in 1968. In its last few years publication was less frequent.
We have created a search that searches both the Northwest Monthly and the Yearbooks sites. This can save time and increase the number of resulting hits. The Library Search Results list indicates the number of records found but the list is often truncated with the link [ More results from . . .
