The MIT student yearbook.
Institute Archives is the official repository for all MIT publications.
The Archives actively collects materials published by administrative offices, laboratories,
departments, research groups, and student and employee organizations. The purpose of collecting these publications is to
provide access to MIT research and to preserve the historical record
of educational, research, and social activities at MIT. Books written
using Institute Archives source materials are also sought. MIT
departments whose back runs of publications are currently being
converted to digital formats are urged to place a set of the paper
copies in the Institute Archives publications collection for long-term
preservation of the originals.
publications collection (also known as the Tech Collection) contains extensive runs of the working papers
and technical reports of MIT laboratories and departments, as well as books that claim MIT as an author, publisher, or subject; biographies of MIT-related persons; histories of MIT and MIT
schools, departments, and laboratories; and alumni/ae reunion books.
Crucial to the documentation of MIT's history are complete sets
of the MIT president's reports (the annual report); the MIT catalog
(the Bulletin); the student yearbook, Technique; the official
MIT newspaper, Tech Talk; the student newspaper, The Tech;
and the alumni/ae magazine, Technology Review.
