Nearly a century of Technicians, the university’s student newspaper, are available online, with support for full-text searching. There are more than 7,500 online issues from 1920 to 2019 that open a valuable window on the history of NC State.

Since it began publishing on February 2,1920, the Technician has been one of NC State’s most powerful vehicles for students to tell their own stories, give their perspective on the issues of the times, influence the direction of the university and the community, and—quite often—tweak the nose of authority. The Technician has published on various schedules during its history, from once weekly in the 1920s, to daily in the early 2000s, and returning to once weekly in the 2010s. For many years the Technician did not publish during the summer.
