The Library’s University Archives regularly receives requests for yearbooks, course catalogs, and schedules from Portland State's past. While anyone is welcome to make an appointment to visit the archives and consult any of these materials, most of the materials are also more readily accessible in the stacks on the third floor of Millar Library.
When searching for these items, keep in mind the name of our school and the titles of these documents have changed a few times over the years. Here are the call number locations of some popularly requested Vanport, Portland State College, and Portland State University publications:
LD 4349 .A2 C322 Portland State University. Bulletin : general catalog issue (course catalog, also linked to Vanport course catalog). Note: More recent copies (1996- ) are available digitally at http://www.pdx.edu/oaa/psu-bulletin.
LD 4349 .A22 S3 Portland State University. Schedule of classes.
LD 4349 .A75 V5 Viking (yearbook). This call number encompasses every title change of the annual yearbook during its years of publication (1946-95, with hiatus 1979-89). Volumes from 1948 on are in the stacks; 1946-48 are held in University Archives.
LD 4349 .A27 B8 Portland State Bulletin (a faculty newsletter that was a precursor to the Currently, and distinct from the course catalog Bulletin listed above)
