UW-Superior Catalogs, Newspapers and Yearbooks

You can access full-text, keyword searchable catalogs, newspapers and yearbooks on-line through the Student Publication Archives. This site works best in Internet Explorer.

The UW-Superior Promethean can be found here


The catalog of the University presents the complete list of course offerings, as well as information about the community, a full listing of the various programs and degrees, and instructions for admission. In the early years the catalogs also contained a history of the institution and lists of faculty, students, and - since UW-Superior was originally a 'Normal' school for teacher training - a list of children by grade level. The catalogs presented begin with the opening of the campus in 1896-7. Eventually, catalogs were published on a 2-year rotation. The final catalog digitized on this site is for 2010-2012.
