Preserving Cougar History
The WSU Libraries are committed to preserving our Cougar history, including memorabilia, correspondence, photos, scrapbooks, newspapers, and much more.
Waiting in the wings are 65 boxes of photos taken by WSU Photo Services between 1948 and 1983. Digitizing and cataloging these photos will ensure their place in the historical record—and allow you to easily search and browse them at any time, from anywhere. But our archivist can't do this alone, which is where you come in.
The Libraries employ a number of students who gain valuable academic, professional, and life experience. We need to hire even more to complete this project.
In the above video, you'll hear from a student working on a similar project in the Kimble Digitization Center about how this work has benefited her personally and professionally. Please follow us on Facebook (Washington State University Libraries Pullman) to see more videos of student employees!
It costs $1,500 to digitize one box of photos. Two generous donors have agreed to match every gift up to $10,000, so every time the Libraries raise $500 the gift amount triples and covers the cost of digitizing one box! Will you help positively influence the life of a student and preserve our Cougar history by making a gift today?
