As we get near the end of the year, some things slow down … but not the heritage site!

I’m thrilled to announce that the entire run of the Kappa Alpha Theta Magazine, 1885 to present, is now available digitally. Visit the Kappa Alpha Theta Archives collection on the Internet Archive to read or search issues. Search across all issues (use the search box to the left and make sure to select “Text contents”) or filter the issues that you would like to search. You can page through the issue, search in just that issue, download it to read on an e-reader, or click on the audio icon to have it read aloud. The historical nerd in me really enjoyed listening to some of the earliest issues. We are proud to make past issues of our magazine available not only to our members but also to those researching women’s history, women in higher education, and Greek-letter organizations.

If you follow Theta on social media, you will know that we celebrated National Archives Month in October, starting off with #AskAnArchivist Day. I had fun with all your questions. Remember that the heritage site has content related to the rich history of Theta, its chapters, and its notable members. And don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have a question about Theta’s history.

Now I am off to continue digging into the magazine and see what other interesting things I can find.
