Library News for 2011
NECO Archives now online!
Recently, the New England College of Optometry Archives received a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) to digitize several of our collections. The digitization process is now complete, and the collections are freely available on the Internet Archive: http://www.archive.org/details/newenglandcollegeofoptometry.
The Archives contain numerous collections that are unique to the institution – all vital records of the history of the school, as well as of the optometric profession and life in general in the late-19th and 20th centuries in New England. Digitized collections include The Scope (a student-run magazine), College catalogs, commencement and awards ceremony programs, and alumni publications. For more information on all of the College’s archival collections, please visit the Archives web site: http://tinyurl.com/NECOArchives (this page will be accessible from the library's website by the beginning of the fall semester).
