The WOU Archives & Scholarly Communication department is currently undertaking the large task of digitizing all issues of the WOU student newspaper to make available on our repository. Digital copies of the newspapers will continue to be uploaded here as we finish processing them, but it could be some time before the project is completed. If you are looking for a specific issue, please email your request to the WOU Archives at email@example.com.
