CSB and SJU Student Newspapers on Vivarium

[See also the Minnesota Digital Newspaper Hub, including the St. Cloud Register and the St. Cloud Visitorwhich together cover 1949-2006.]

The entire run of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John’s University student newspapers have been digitized and are available for full-text searching online. The CSB newspaper was published between 1965 and 1999, and had several title changes. The SJU newspaper, The Record, has been published since 1888. In 2000 it became a joint CSB and SJU newspaper.

Issues can be searched separately, collectively, or browsed; see below.

An  IN-HOUSE SUBJECT INDEX to selected articles from The Record and other campus publications is also available, as is one to CSB-only Student Newspapers; NOTE that both are useful for locating citations to only  major articles on a subject.  The articles cited are not linked to the full text, and would need to be found using the links below.
