Bishop, Visiting Instructor in the Department of History and Foreign Languages, to his HY201 and HY202 classes in Spring 2020. The students used the project to document their perspectives on the ways in which the COVID-19 pandemic affected, shaped, and disrupted their daily lives.

See the history of Jacksonville State University through the eyes of its students with the JSU Yearbook Collection. From 1926 to the present, the JSU Yearbooks (the Teacola and later the Mimosa) chart the course of JSU's students as the institution evolved from State Normal School to State Teachers College to Jacksonville State College, and finally Jacksonville State University.

Purple & White (Special Collections)
The Purple and White is a monthly JSU student publication from the Edwardian period. The Library holds issues (with some gaps) from 1904-1914. The publication is varied, including newsletter information, literary works (poetry, short stories, reviews), advertisements, as well as the types of information that would later be found in yearbooks, such as student lists, faculty information, and athletics coverage.
