The Queens College Graduate School of Library and Information Studies (GSLIS) teamed up with the Queens College Archives in 2005, to explore the feasibility of a collaborative approach to digitizing selected materials from the Archives. Among the digitized materials included in this segment of this METRO-funded project are an Illustrated history entitled The People’s College on the Hill: Fifty Years at Queens College, 1937-1987 (pp. 1-128), a selection of flyers advertizing events sponsored by various student organizations, magazine covers of student-sponsored publications, selected letters, a slideshow from the Class of 1943 Reunion held in 1998, and slides from a “Virtual Tour” of Campus, 1954-1963. Forty images represented cover and selected pages from the 1941 Queens College Yearbook, Silhouette, are included in this segment. All images were scanned by GSLIS students in fall and spring sections of the Digital Imaging class. Rosenthal Library staff provided assistance with metadata.
