The Bison FAQ

Who created the Bison Index?

Ms. Winnie Bell, Brackett Library's Director from 1975-1990, spent many of her retirement years compiling the data to create this index.

Why does the index stop in 2004?

In 2004, the newspaper began its online presence.  We had hoped that the index and the digital site could be merged but this has not yet been possible.  As time allows, library staff plans to add the more recent years.  

How can I get a hard copy of an article?

After you have conducted a search, the article titles will show up as a link.  If you click on the link, the full Adobe PDF version of the newspaper will download.  Most browsers will even open to the page in which the article appears.  

Can I just look at a particular issue of The Bison?

Yes. There are tabs just above the search box that represent different decades. Just click on a decade and a list of years will display. Then click on a year and the issues from that year will display. If a particular issue, year or decade is not present in this list, then those have not yet been digitized because we are missing those issues in our collection.

What years of the newspaper have been scanned?

As of May 2014, we have finished scanning all the back issues. There are unfortunately some gaps in our collection from the early years. 

If I wanted to find more about The Bison, where should I look?

The Link website, maintained by the Department of Communications, contains information and many extra articles written for recent issues of The Bison.
