Daily Kent Stater Digital Archive

The Daily Kent Stater Digital Archive is a multi-year project to digitize every issue of the Kent Stater / Daily Kent Stater campus newspaper. The project, funded by the Kent State University Libraries, includes issues dating from fall 1939 through fall 2015. Also included are Kent Summer News issues from the 1950s through the 2000s. Please note that there were no issues of the paper from July 1943 through August 1944 and from Fall 1950 on file in print or on microfilm in Kent State University Special Collections and Archives. From 29 August 2013 through spring 2015, one issue per week was released under the title of KSU Buzz, a weekly entertainment magazine. Within some issues from the 2000s, some damage has occurred to portions of pages due to the binding process.

The archive is fully keyword searchable, including ads, and can also be browsed by issue date. You can download a PDF of an entire issue as well as "clipping" selected articles and printing or downloading them to a PDF file.
