Student Newspapers of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University

The entire run of the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University student newspapers have been digitized and are available for full-text searching online. The CSB newspaper was published between 1965 and 1999, and had several title changes. The SJU newspaper, The Record, has been published since 1888. In 2000 it became a joint CSB/SJU newspaper.

An index to Selected Articles from The Record and other campus publications is also available, and would be most useful for locating citations to major articles on a subject.  The articles cited are not linked to the full text, however, and would need to be found using the Advanced Search.
