Thanks for the memories!

After 10+ years this is our final post on this blog.  As we mentioned earlier in the spring, we're focusing our online outreach efforts in other venues.

We hope you'll follow the Oberlin College Library on Tumblr, Twitter, or Facebook - we've still got lots to share with you!

Read Hi-o-His, the Oberlin Alumni Magazines and the Review Online!

Graduates and Reunion Class Members get your fix of Oberlin nostalgia from wherever your paths lead.

The Library (with help of the College Archives!) provides online access to the Hi-o-Hi yearbooks (1960-1991), the Oberlin Alumni Magazine (1904-1960), and the Oberlin Review (1874-2012).
