USFSP Digital Archive Features Commencements

Nearly all of the USFSP commencement programs — since the first ceremony in May 1982 — have been added to a new collection in the Digital Archives at Nelson Poynter Memorial Library. Special Collections Librarian Jim Schnur hopes to complete the collection within the next year.”As usual, Jim is to be recognized for creating a collection that will serve us well for many years to come,” said Carol Hixson, dean of the Poynter Library. “The Archive itself is an incredible tool that allows us to share our history and accomplishments with alumni and friends.”
