ONEIDA, N.Y. >> Oneida High School year­books from1936 through 2018 have been suc­cess­fully dig­i­tized, elec­tron­i­cally in­dexed and posted on­line at the web site of New York Her­itage, thanks to a Re­gional Bi­b­li­o­graphic Data­bases Pro­gram grant to the Oneida Pub­lic Li­brary from the New York State Li­brary, as ad­min­is­tered by the Cen­tral New York Li­brary Re­sources Coun­cil in Syracuse.

The OPL pro­vided four car­tons of do­nated year­books and sought out the help of the Oneida High School Li­brary for other vol- umes not in its pos­ses­sion or al­ter­nate copies in bet­ter shape than the li­brary’s. Thanks to school li­brar­ian, Zoe Hicks, the dig­i­tal col­lec­tion not only con­tains a com­plete set of year­books from 1936 to 2018 but also the Dial An­nual, writ­ten by the grad­u­at­ing class, for the years 1926 and 1927.

The CLRC, us­ing the tal­ents of in­tern Lau­ren Phillips un­der the su­per­vi­sion of Dig­i­tal Col­lec­tions Li­brar­ian Ryan Perry, dig­i­tized the year­books over the sum­mer. Dig­i­ti­za­tion in­cluded scan­ning, tran­scrib­ing text and cre­at­ing meta­data to de­scribe and re­trieve data con­tained in the year­books. As a re­sult, ev­ery year­book can be searched on­line, whether by key­word, ac­tiv­ity or per­sonal name.

Those in­ter­ested in ex­plor­ing the year­books on­line can go di­rectly to the New YorkHer­itage site at: https:// ny­her­itage.org/col­lec­tions/ oneida-year­book-col­lec­tion
