Digitized Collections

We’ve digitized several of our collections. Digitization was partially made possible by a grant from the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Alumni Newsletters
The New England College of Optometry alumni newsletter collection contains issues of various Alumni Association publications from 1960 onward.

College Catalogs
From the very first catalog for the 1895-1896 academic year, the catalogs have included a list of instructors, the school’s mission, programs of study, academic calendar, and tuition fees. Later versions also include requirements for admission, information on school facilities (including labs, clinics, and the library), and course descriptions.

Commencement and Awards Ceremony Programs
This collection contains programs from annual Commencement ceremonies and various awards ceremonies held throughout the academic year, from 1924 onward.

Master’s Theses
Theses presented to the graduate faculty of New England College of Optometry in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science, 2005-present.

Public Health Posters
A repository of posters created by New England College of Optometry OD1 students for the PC12402 Vision Health Care course, 2003-present.

The Scope
The Scope was a publication written by students from 1929 to 1963. It contained articles related to the field of optometry, news about the College and community, photographs, editorials, alumni news, and advertisements. Occasionally, it served as the yearbook.
