The Daily Trojan, 1912- [the student newspaper]
The Daily Trojan is the student newspaper at the University of Southern California often referred to as the "DT". The paper, published by USC students grew out of the University Courier (1894-1912), a weekly news and literary magazine. Since its inception in 1912, the DT has had several different titles:
- Daily Southern Californian (1912-1915)
- Southern California Trojan (1915-1925, 1943-1944)
- Southern California Daily Trojan (1925-1943, 1944-1946)
- Daily Trojan (1943, 1946- )
The collection was digitized from microfilm and print copies of the newspaper in the University Archives and current issues continue to be added electronically.
For more information see Daily Trojan History.

University Libraries Collection -- coming soon
The Edward L. Doheny Memorial Library, USC's flagship library, opened in 1932. Sixty-seven years after its opening, it was closed for nearly two years for a Seismic Retrofit and Preservation Project from December 1999 to August 2001. The project was mostly paid for by FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) and included major cleaning and conservation work as well.
The photographs in this collection showcase the newly retrofitted building just prior to its reopening. Both public and private spaces are documented.
Some photographs of the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Library, which opened in 1994 and is located just across the quad from Doheny, are also included.
