In an effort to make early editions of the campus newspapers available online, Southern Methodist University Archives has initiated a project to digitize these student publications. As of June 2014, all issues from 1915-December 1947 have been digitized. Plans exist to continue digitization of the SMU student newspapers up to 2000.
