The newly updated Furman Student Newspapers Collection is now online. The collection includes scans of the print newspapers from 1916 through April 2018. A huge thank you to the Digital Collections Center staff and student assistants who made this collection a reality. The new scans, better OCR, and improved metadata really improve the usability of this important resource. The DCC will continue to add current newspapers on a regular basis.
The following Furman Paladin article published on November 1, 1968, reminds female students about a new dress code. A ruling was passed which allowed women students (only on Saturdays!) to “wear sports clothes all day on campus, even in the library.”
