The Highlander Current and Archival Issues: Home

Welcome to the Highlander page!

Welcome to "The Highlander" page!  This LibGuide contains links to the current Highlander, PDF formats of the archival issues, and indexes to the past issues of the Highlander and Panther, the former title for the student newspaper.  

The current Highlander is web-based and the link is on this page.  The second link is the PDF version of text only and it is much easier to search using a <control F> for the search box.

The other links are lists of dates that our library owns  of the titles in paper.  The library has indexed all dates of the The Highlander and  "The Panther" which was the predecessor of "The Highlander."   They are not for public use.  You must consult a librarian for specific issues and we are very cautious about how they are handled.  Many of the paper issues are very fragile.  Maybe someday we can digitize this collection and make it accessible to all of our campus community.  Wouldn't that be awesome?  Are you interested in helping with this project?  Please contact: if you want to help!
