Digital Publishing Services’ ongoing digitization of back issues of the Cowl has enter a new phase, the 1980s!
Providence College’s student newspaper, The Cowl, began publication on November 16th, 1935. It has been published continuously each academic year since then, with the exception of two years in the 1940’s during World War II
We will continue to digitize the Cowl up to the point that it became a ‘born digital’ newspaper. At that point, we hope to collect all of the born digital copies and archive them in Digital Commons as well.
