College newspapers can be a veritable treasure trove of information about the cultural and social life of a given institution, and the Cornell Daily Sun is certainly no exception. Recently, the Cornell University Library and the Daily Sun embarked on a new digitization project to provide online access to previous editions of the paper dating back to the year 1880. First-time visitors to the site may want to start by just browsing through some of the back issues in all of their detail. Of course, visitors can also perform advanced and basic searches, but it should be noted that just typing in “Ithaca” will return many, many results. Other interesting searches include “Stalin” and “Saul Alinsky”, and no doubt there are others that will pique the interest of even the most casual user of this site.
