The Columbia University Archives staff has put together some Research Guides to help you take advantage of our holdings. For each type of search, you will find the most popular resources available and how to access them: some online and some in person. The guides focus on alumni, faculty, course descriptions, Master's essays and dissertations, and buildings and grounds information.

These are now available on the Internet Archive. The issues have been indexed so you can easily search for articles, features and alumni news or just browse through the individual issues
