The back issues of The Ithacan provide a rich historical resource for the College, for its former, current and future students and for the larger Ithaca community. A timeline of the Ithacan is provided by the Ithaca College Quarterly. The earliest paper was titled Once-A-Week and served the Ithaca Conservatory of Music from 1926 through 1930. Its name transition to The Ithacan preceded the name change of the institution by only a few months as the Conservatory became Ithaca College in March 1931.
The Ithacan incorporated as an independent company in 1969 (see https://digitalcommons.ithaca.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1000&context=ithacan_1969-70 ). In 1988, The Ithacan became a student newspaper "published by the School of Communications" thus ending the "independent" era.
It is now available on the web, from 1931-2002, hosted in Digital Commons IC. The previous paper, titled Once-A-Week, is available from 1926 to 1930. Post 2002 issues are being added as they are available.
