In the past, we have been able to search back files of The Prospector only on NewspaperArchive.com, but, as a special UTEP Centennial Project, the Library has contracted with Heritage Archives to do a special Prospector-only site, digitizing more of the student paper from our microfilm. On the new site, open to the public, 37,072 pages of The Prospector have been loaded so far. I tried a couple of searches, and they seem to work well. Try the site for yourselves, and keep watching for new additions and changes. This site should be open to everyone, not just those with access to the NewspaperArchive.com site.
