The University Archives has a variety of American University publications.

Talon
     The American University undergraduate yearbook was first published in 1926. It was then called AUCOLA, which stood for the American University College of Liberal Arts. In 1956, it was renamed the Talon, which represents the claw of AU’s mascot, Clawed the Eagle.
     The University Archives has a complete set of AU yearbooks. Some volumes are also available in the library Reference collection. Check the library catalog entry for the holdings. AU has digital copies of the Talon  searchable through Internet Archive. The most recent editions of the Talon have been digitized; however, they may only be viewed on campus to protect students' privacy. Alumni who would like to have copies should contact the AU Archives

The Eagle
     American University's undergraduate student newspaper, The Eagle, began its run in November 1925 as The American Eagle with the publication of its first four-page issue. Current and historical issues of the student newspaper can be searched online.
