The Swarthmore College Student Publications collection features publications printed by students and student groups from 1887 until 2013. It primarily comprises literary journals, though it also includes academic journals, newsletters and bulletins, art and photography publications, satire and parodies, musical scores and ephemera. Titles range from perfect-bound volumes published continuously for decades to hand lettered ephemera that never persisted past the first issue. In addition to documenting events in the history of the college, the collection traces the diversity, aesthetic affinities and political engagements of Swarthmore's students since the college's founding.
