  • Abstract

    The Augustana College academic papers and theses, 1877-2017 and undated, was assembled by Special Collections staff for the purpose of keeping academic and scholarly works by Augustana faculty and students together. The collection contains academic papers, master's theses, sermons, speeches, undergraduate papers submitted for academic credit, prize winning papers, and proceedings of the annual Celebration of Learning.

  • Accruals

    Special Collections continues to add materials to Series VI: Celebration of Learning on a regular basis. Special Collections stopped adding student and faculty work to this collection in 2014.
