Penn State alumni and their descendants will be interested in this new offering: Penn State's La Vie yearbook from 1890 to 2000 is now available online. La Vie, the Penn State University annual student yearbook, has been in production documenting student life continuously since 1890. The project is a collaboration between the Penn State University Archives and the University Libraries Digitization and Preservation Department. It features about 51,000 pages of yearbook content.
One woman was doing family genealogy research by going through past yearbook issues and was excited to find members of her family who had gone to Penn State listed in the La Vie archives, according to Sue Kellerman, head of Digitization and Preservation.
The Digitization and Preservation Department had nine people completing the technical and behind-the-scenes aspects of the project.
