From September 2020 to May 2021, Lara scanned the old paper literary journals and magazines in order to make them easier to find and view by a wider audience. She worked in conjunction with Professor Rachel Hall of the English Department; Liz Argentieri, the Special Collections librarian in Fraser Hall (Milne) Library; as well as a number of other faculty, staff, and students. Jessica Vance, a spring 2022 graduate of Geneseo, took over the project from Lara in fall 2021. Jessica finished scanning the library’s collection, and set up the project to continue post graduation through advertising and physical displays of the printed journals in both Welles Hall near Geneseo’s English Department and in the library.
These literary treasures are now easily accessible to everyone and showcase the rich history and artistic merit of half a century of Geneseo students.
