The Eagle Online!!!

This summer, Tech Archives had yearbooks dating from 1926 to 2003 digitized and made text searchable. As mentioned in previous articles, scanning is time consuming and tedious. As a result, we used a vendor for the physical scanning while cataloging the yearbooks was performed inhouse. The work performed by the qualified vendor speed up the digitization process and expedited making the yearbooks available to patrons (you!).

The yearbooks are available in chronological order here.
