Golden Legend Yearbook Archives Available Online

March 01, 2012


The University Archives of Saint Leo University is pleased to announce the digitization of the Golden Legend yearbook. These archives include publications from 1963 all the way through 2011.

The 48 volumes of the Golden Legend available online were scanned from cover-to-cover and in full color. They can be browsed by date and can be read online or downloaded in various formats for convenience. Within each volume, pages can be played in succession or searched independently by searching names or key phrases.

Easily accessible, these archives are a great way to stay in touch with fellow alumni, to remember the history of Saint Leo, and to see how wonderfully the Saint Leo Community has grown over the years.

This exciting resource has been made possible through the LYRASIS Mass Digitization Collaborative—a Sloan Foundation grant-subsidized program that has made digitization easy and affordable for libraries and cultural institutions across the country. The archives are hosted through The Internet Archive, a non-profit founded to build an Internet library for the preservation of historical collections in digital format.

In a world where digital media is constantly growing, digitized collections are a great resource allowing students, faculty, alumni, and the general public to browse the historical collections that help showcase what makes us proud to be part of Saint Leo University.

University Archives, housed with Special Collections in the Daniel A. Cannon Memorial Library, functions as the official repository of Saint Leo College/University non-current records that have permanent historical, legal, fiscal, or administrative value. The Archives offers a significant benefit to the entire university community, especially to Saint Leo alumni who can take advantage of these collections of previous student newspapers and student yearbooks.
