TechNews Transition

The digital archive for Illinois Tech’s student newspaper, TechNews (and previously Technology News and Armour Tech News) is transitioning to its new home at the Illinois Tech Institutional Repository, repository.iit. This transition addresses technical concerns, but will also add full text searching functionality across nine decades of student newspapers.

The transition involves a migration process that is expected to be complete by the end of this Spring 2020 semester. You can follow our ingestion progress, and browse or search ingested issues here or by visiting the Tech News collection in the University Archives and Special Collections section of the repository:

Should you have questions or have a pressing need for issues that have yet to be ingested, you can contact Aric Ahrens at

Please note that this transition does not impact the TechNews current issues at the mobile friendly site:

Thank you for your patience during this transition.
