Early student periodicals, 2015

Student papers

Drawing on a mix of CIHM microform and original source material, the Early Canadian Periodicals project substantially enriched its collection of historical student publications in 2014-15, adding a wide range of titles from the Maritimes, British Columbia, and Quebec. This expanding collection represents an excellent resource in the history of Canadian higher education, highlighting the important contributions of college and university journalism to Canadian literature, politics, and society.
