Butler Libraries Special Collections

Grizzly Yearbooks

Butler Community College yearbooks and Grizzly magazines are now available online for everyone to view. This exciting project was coordinated by Butler Libraries and includes full color and cover to cover scanning of every issue of the yearbooks and magazines, going back to 1928. Choose from a variety of formats, page through a book choosing the "read online" option, download the PDF, print PDF images and search the text of each yearbook. The project was made possible through the LYRASIS Mass Digitization Collaborative – a Sloan Foundation grant–subsidized program that has made digitization easy and affordable for libraries and cultural institutions across the country, and a local donation : Grizzly Yearbooks
