General note

Scanned between May 2013 and March 2015 using an Epson Expression 11000XL scanner and ABBYY Finereader (version 11) software. Settings: 600 dpi, colour, at approximately 50% brightness. Images were saved in TIFF format, with LZW compression. FineReader was also used to carry out OCR (optical character recognition) on the TIFFs, to create keyword-searchable PDF/As.

General note

Trinity Western Today from 1980 to early 1982 appears to be a joint student/staff publication. The November 17, 1980 issue states it is a “combined student/staff paper.” The December 12 issue states it is a “cooperative student/staff paper.” The tagline is: “covering the entire campus community.” The January 16 “Report to Student Council” issue states that the student paper “Trinity Today” was merged with the “Campus Communicator” party because the student editorial staff had diminished to only two students. The tagline disappears in March 1982 and in Fall 1982 there is a change of format, and the paper appears to revert to a student publication.
