Calyx Online

An opening spread of the 1960 Calyx from the online interface

Lost your Calyx in your last move? The University Library has felt your pain. This week, it has posted online more than 110 years’ worth of Washington and Lee’s student yearbook, all digitized.

Here is the library’s gateway page for the online Calyx:

Once you find the volume you want, you can browse it right on the website or download it in several different formats — as a pdf in either color or black white; as an ePub for use on iPads, Sony Readers, iPhones, etc.; as a Daisy book; or as a Kindle file. John Tombarge, the interim University Librarian, says that there are still a few quality-control issues being address by the company that did the scanning, but all of the material has been posted.

This is the first of several projects that are scheduled for the Washington and lee Digital Depository. Other planned projects include honors theses fro the Class of 2010, a database of faculty publications, the Ring-tum Phi, older issues of local newspapers, materials documenting Mock Convention, and initiatives from the School of Law.

    I have a nearly complete collection of “Calices” (1895-2007) which we have used for educating ourselves on past cultural details of the university and for occasional research on individual alumni. Since this information is now available digitally (thus, more easily searched), I am offering for sale (best offer including postage) the University Registrar collection.
