Back issues of the Emory Wheel held in the University Archives are now available digitally to the Emory community via the Emory Digital Gallery. Anyone with an Emory Network ID can login and access the resource. The digitized version of the Wheel covers 1919 through 2009 and is digitized from the original newsprint version of the Wheel. The digitization process began in 2016, completed in 2017, and the Wheel has been available in the Rose Library reading room since 2018.
The Emory Wheel is consistently one of the most requested publications in the University Archives in the Rose Library reading room and is a robust, comprehensive record of Emory’s history in the 20th century. Our hope is that making this resource more widely available encourages engagement with Emory history, spurs in-depth research, and generates new knowledge for the benefit of the Emory community. Whether looking into the early days of Dooley, information about the growth and development of campus, or race and social justice on campus, the digitized Wheel is a crucial source of information.
Furthermore, anyone can access the Emory Wheel’s online version via the University Archives web archives back to 2012 or using the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine to explore earlier captures of the Wheel online.
