Attention reunion planners: The Daily Princetonian, partnering with the University Library, is preparing to put its archives online, dating back to its first issue in 1876. University archivist Daniel Linke said about 80,000 pages are being scanned to create a SEARCHABLE ARCHIVE up to 1997, when the paper began publishing online. The Larry DuPraz Archives, named after the late Princetonian production supervisor, should be completed by the end of 2010. The $160,000 project, a partnership of the Prince trustees and the University Library, has received funding from alumni donations, the Humanities Council and the archives, with the library providing about $20,000 worth of software. The Prince is seeking to raise the final $16,000; tax-deductible contributions can be sent by mail to Linke at Mudd Manuscript Library, 65 Olden St., Princeton N.J. 08540. Checks should be payable to the Princeton University Library and should include “Daily Princetonian digitization” or the project account number, 690-2752, on the memo line.
Princeton will invest more than $40 million to reduce campus usage of energy utilities by at least 25 percent in the next 10 years, according to the 2009 REPORT ON SUSTAINABILITY. The Office of Sustainability said the University made a small but “significant step” in curbing greenhouse-gas emissions in 2008–09, cutting emissions by nearly 1 percent in a year when the campus added about 164,000 square feet of indoor space. The report, available online at www.princeton.edu/ reports/sustainability2009, focuses on greenhouse-gas reduction, resource conservation, and research, education, and civic engagement. PAW will take a closer look at Princeton’s sustainability efforts in an upcoming issue.
