Outlook magazine now digitally archived

From its humble beginning as a mimeographed, five-page news-sheet to today’s four-color, 36-page, high-quality glossy magazine and multimedia online presence, Outlook magazine has long been the featured source of information about the people and events of Washington University School of Medicine.

Now complete issues of Outlook — from the first issue released in 1964 through October 2011 — are available in PDF format, thanks to archivist Stephen A. Logsdon and colleagues at the School of Medicine’s Bernard Becker Medical Library. Logsdon, along with Angie M. Rosengarten, nighttime circulation manager, and Jolie L. Braun, library assistant, scanned 179 issues to complete the project. The project is part of Becker Medical Library’s Digital Commons@Becker, a digital repository for hosting the scholarly work created at Washington University School of Medicine and enhancing its visibility and accessibility to scholars, researchers and the public.
