New Collections in the Digital Archive

The UT Health Science Center Libraries have added new items to the Digital Archive: The Medical School Yearbooks Project and the Electronic ThesisYearbook Photographs and Dissertation Collection.

Medical School Yearbooks Project

Curious about what a Health Science Center student looked like in 1971 or what the School of Medicine faculty looked like in 1981?  Check out the Medical School Yearbooks Project in the library’s Digital Archive.  The Medical School Yearbooks Project is part of the University History Collection and consists of several volumes of the medical school yearbook in digital format.  All of the yearbooks in the Digital Archive are either owned by the UT Health Science Center Libraries or have been loaned to the library for digitization purposes.  For more information about the Medical School Yearbooks Project visit: http://library.uthscsa.edu/2011/09/medical-school-yearbooks/.

Currently, years 1983 and 1984 are missing from the Digital Archive; if you have a copy of either of these years and would be willing to lend it to the library for digitization, please contact the Digital Archive Team at DigitalArchive@uthscsa.edu.

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Collection

The Electronic Thesis and Dissertation (ETD) Collection is a compilation of theses and dissertations produced at the UT Health Science Center in digital format.  Currently the Digital Archive has copies from 2004 to the present.  This collection will be updated on a continuous basis.  More information about the ETD Collection:
