About this collection
VCU and its predecessors have benefitted from the various administrative newsletters and newspapers published throughout the second half of the twentieth century. These valuable resources are now fully searchable and available in digital form as part of the VCU News Publications collection.

The VCU News Publications collection contains a wealth of information on the University’s past. In addition to news stories, feature articles, and event calendars, there are hundreds of images of campus life and of former students, staff, faculty, and administrators. What might be most significant is the wide range of University reports that were frequently published. Departments and schools also submitted articles and other news items that they thought would be of interest to the University community. Letters to the editor, editorials, and formal messages from deans and presidents are some of the other examples of the content found in the newsletters and newspapers that make up this digitized collection. Items in this collection were digitized between 2011-2016.

The original print issues of The Medicovan are housed in the Health Sciences Library Special Collections and Archives on the MCV campus. VCU Today, VCU Voice, UniverCity News, VCU News, and Research in Action are available at both the James Branch Cabell Library Special Collections and Archives and the Health Sciences Library Special Collections and Archives.
