LinCs, Crescents and UE History

Some Navigation Tips

Click on the year you want, which should bring up the first page of text. At this point you can just search around, as on other websites. If that's not as successful as you would like, consider the following suggestions.

Find the magnifying glass near the right margin, just under the four-point icon. When the cursor hovers over this magnifying glass, you are invited to “search inside.” Clicking it brings up a larger two-page image; a toolbar at the bottom; and at upper right, on an abbreviated toolbar, two icons for zooming in and out, as well as a “Search inside this book” box to find names of people and organizations. (More about this last item below.)

The bottom toolbar has several options for navigating the volume, as explained below. Moving from left to right:

  • Blue circle = your place in the volume. Placing the cursor over the circle shows the volume's page number. The horizontal line represents the entire volume. Use the computer's mouse to drag the circle right or left to traverse pages quickly.
  • Direction arrows, back and forward.
  • Single box = a single-page image; click it and you can scroll through page by page vertically, or use direction arrows to go forward or back.
  • Two boxes = a double-page image; no vertical scrolling capability, so use direction arrows.
  • Four boxes = a thumbnail view, all pages in the volume.

The single-page image seems to work best for reading small type, especially in the Crescents.

Just above the bottom toolbar, at lower right, click the triangle to enlarge (slightly) the screen at the top and bottom borders of the image. BUT both toolbars, including the Search box, will disappear. Click again on the triangle to reduce vertical reach, which will restore the toolbars.

Results of searches in the Search box will appear along that horizontal line below. Search here for names of people, organizations, etc.

NOTE: The Internet Archive's search engine can be temperamental when it comes to using this “Search inside this book” box, and occasionally it doesn't function. Browsing is always an alternative.

Experiment with these various features as you browse and search.

LinCs Online

LinC was the University's award-winning, student-directed yearbook that ended with the 2016-17 yearbook.

All issues of the LinC from 1922 to 2016 are available online through Internet Archive. Access to this resource is made possible by the generosity of a UE alumnus.

NOTE: The University of Evansville Archives is pleased to offer these publicly-accessible digitized records of the LinC as part of our historical record. However, during the course of preparing these records for digitization, library staff discovered some disturbing images that contain offensive, racialized depictions, and caricatures of historically underrepresented people at Evansville College and the University of Evansville. While we recognize these images serve as a partial visual history of our institution during the years covered, the images in no way reflect current and ongoing efforts to build and maintain a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment that develops interpersonal trust, cultural appreciation, and shared purpose throughout the UE community.

The Crescent

The Crescent is the University's award-winning, student-directed newspaper. It was published weekly and freely distributed across campus.

The Evansville College Class of 1966 Reunion Committee and a generous alumnus funded the collaborative between the Library and the Internet Archive. Use these links to get the campus news from 1919 to 2009.
