Who We Serve
We are part of a private, liberal arts university, so we serve the students, faculty, staff, and alumni of The University of the South; we also offer access and assistance to the general public.
Sewanee Digital Collections include:
- Sewanee Purple and other newspapers from 1872-1994
- Cap and Gown yearbook
- Photos from the University Archives
- College Catalogs
- Trustees Proceedings
You can also access the Sewanee Purple from 1951-present via the Internet Archive. Simply search for "Sewanee Purple."
