Abstract: The University of North Carolina at Pembroke's student newspaper, the Pine Needle, was founded in 1947. This project transfers the last 60 years of the student newspaper, and storing it on the university's server. Digitizing the student newspaper will help to preserve it and the university's history, which spans 120 years. The digital format updates the antiquated microfilm currently used by the Mary Livermore Library, which allows the Pine Needle to be more readily accessible to the public. My hope is that the digital preservation of the student newspaper will foster a desire to maintain and honor the unique history of the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
