The recent past can often be overlooked by digital archive projects. Fortunately, that is not the case at the University of Washington Libraries Digital Collections group. Recently, they digitized four student newspapers, including the Independent, the Ledger, the Daily, and the Commons. The papers come from the main campus in Seattle, and the other branches in Tacoma and Bothell. Visitors can search the collection via the search engine, or they can browse by year or newspaper. The subjects covered within these pages include student protests, union activism, local celebrations, and issues regarding education at these very different campuses. Additionally, visitors are welcome to offer their own contributions to the project via the "Donating to the Student Newspapers Archive" link.
