For those of us that love new digitized online resources, today is a day to celebrate! Yearbooks for Penn State have now been digitized and made available free of charge at the PennState Universities Library website. The site is called: The Penn State Life: 100+ Years of La Vie. Annuals available start with 1890 and run through the year 2000.
The first annual containing a Meitzler was in 1968, where we find Larry C. Meitzler, a civil engineering student, listed on the “Seniors Without Photographs” page. There are nine annuals with Meitzlers listed. The searches are easy and fast. Browsing is fun. And the images are wonderful!
The following is from the website:
La Vie, the Penn State University annual student yearbook, has been in production documenting student life continuously since 1890. La Vie is a student publication governed by an internal Board of Directors who manage and control the copy rights to La Vie publications. Current information about La Vie can be obtained by contacting the staff at their website: http://www.clubs.psu.edu/up/lavie.
The Online La Vie project, digitizing yearbooks beginning in 1890 through 2000, is a joint collaboration between the Penn State University Archives and the University Libraries Digitization and Preservation Department. Review the details concerning the specifications for digitizing these volumes.
Read more about the project at the April 24, 2009 edition of The Daily Collegian website.
