Several digital projects are underway or completed. All of the Lanthorns, the student yearbook, have been digitized from the first publication in 1897 to the present. We have also digitized several hundred images highlighting Susquehanna's University's history, which began in 1858.
The University Archives contains documents and memorabilia related to the school’s founding, growth and development up to the present. Included are yearbooks, student newspapers (the Crusader), papers of university presidents, and thousands of photographs capturing documents, events and people from the earliest days to the present. Students often conduct research in the archives in connection with course research and instruction.
