For researchers interested in the University of Cincinnati and student life, digitized copies of the student newspaper, the News Record provides significant insight to campus life. While the issues are not transcribed, the PDFs are text-searchable. In addition, each issue has numerous photographs and advertisements from local businesses.
Source material from this digital collection comes from the Archives and Rare Books Library, which holds archival copies of the printed News Record. Occasionally, you will find oddities in the pagination, volume or issue numbering, or mistakes in the dates. No attempt has been made to correct these mistakes as we present the publication as it orignally appeared. However, sometimes there are two conflciting copies in the archival collection. When this occurs, we present both copies with an explanatory note.
The News Record frequently carried stories on the following topics:
|January 5||January 12||January 19||January 26|
|February 2||February 9||February 16||February 23|
|March 2||March 9||March 30||April 6|
|April 13||April 20||April 27||May 4|
|May 11||May 18||May 25||September 20|
|September 27||September 29||October 3||October 6|
|October 10||October 13||October 17||October 20|
|October 24||October 27||October 31||November 3|
|November 7||November 10||November 14||November 17|
|November 21||December 1|
A gift from the University of Cincinnati Alumni Association funded the digitization of News Record issues from 1960 to 1970. A gift from Jordan Bleznick (A&S '76) in honor of his father Dr. Donald W. Bleznick funded the digitization of News Record issues from 1973 to 1976.
Support to continue digitization of the News Record is actively being sought. For information about how to help, please contact the UC Libraries' Director of Development at 513-556-0055 or make your gift online.
