Its official – the McIntyre Library's Special Collections and Archives has gone digital! Since early 2013, we have been creating a digital collections to feature University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire archival collections. UW-Eau Claire students, staff, alumni, and community members can easily view campus photographs and browse or search through a full set of the campus yearbook, The Periscope, from 1917-1995, with this online tool. New collections will be added as we continue digitizing them.

In addition to online items, a panel exhibit is located on the 5th floor outside the Special Collections and Archives Department that features photographs, yearbooks, and information about the digital collections. Stop into the Archives or contact us at (715) 836-2739 or library.archives@uwec.edu to ask us any questions!
