Celebrating Virginia Tech's Sesquicentennial: Resources from the University Libraries: Digital Publications & Media

As we move toward the 150th anniversary of Virginia Tech, this guide brings together known resources from campus and the larger community on the history of the university. This guide will be updated as new projects are completed.

Many groups on campus may have digital publications and collections of digital media available for use/reuse in other projects. The descriptions of digital publications below include, whenever possible, a note about the rights for use of the materials. If the rights are not known, we have provided a contact person for the materials who may be able to provide those details.
