The Oregon Daily Emerald needs your help to preserve 100+ years of the University of Oregon’s past!

The stories and opinions of the University of Oregon students and faculty have been captured throughout the pages of the Oregon Daily Emerald (ODE) for over a century. They share the individual and common recollections of events and thoughts, from the university’s beginnings as a growing state school, to the internationally recognized, premier public university of today. 

The Oregon Digital Newspaper Program at the UO Libraries has been digitizing newspapers from all over Oregon and making them publicly available as a valuable research tool for students, faculty, historians and interested community members. Now, the ODNP will be digitizing the Oregon Daily Emerald (from 1909 to the present) and a gift from you will help them secure the funds to finish the project. Help us capture and make readily available this unique campus treasure.

Over 100 years of campus history at your fingertips! 

The Oregon Daily Emerald has provided the University of Oregon with news and information since its inception in 1891 when the campus publication, The Reflector, first appeared. Throughout the past century, the ODE changed names, size, focus, and delivery. From campus events and reactions to issues of the times, the Oregon Daily Emerald has recorded a variety of voices. In the early ‘70’s, the newspaper became an independent entity, and continues to be the largest student-run publication on campus, staffed by many UO School of Journalism students. 

With your help, we will be able to preserve this historical publication for future Ducks and community members. Make a gift today!
