As part of its contribution to the commemoration of the UTEP Centennial, the UTEP Library Special Collections Department has recently created a site in our institutional repository, Digital Commons, to house newly digitized yearbooks, serials, NOVA issues, and books about UTEP history. This site also contains links to other digitized UTEP history resources, such as campus newsletters, The Prospector (student newspaper), and historic course catalogs. Additional materials will be added in the coming months. The UTEP History Resources site should facilitate student, staff, alumni, and community users’ research into the school’s past, and is available at http://digitalcommons.utep.edu/utep_hist/.
