New Collection Descriptions for the Month!

The following 12 finding aids for OSU Archives collections have been completed or updated in January 2009. They have been loaded to the NWDA finding aids database and have a PDF on the OSU archives’ website and a catalog record in the OSU Libraries’ catalog, Summit, and Worldcat. Five of these are for collections acquired in 2008; six are for collections for which there was previously no information available online.

We now have 368 finding aids in NWDA.

  • These images (1247 total) depict OSU’s academic and research programs in agriculture; Branch Experiment Stations in Oregon; faculty, students, and alumni; international programs; and special events, conferences, and workshops. Of particular note are images taken in 1913 by bacteriologist Emile Pernot of farms and slaughter houses in Benton County. The largest component of the collection is a group of 900 color slides, many taken in 2001, that depict students and faculty participating in instruction and research activities.
