- Early publications including Institute Echoes (1903), Villa Sancta Scholastica Quarterly (1910-1927), and College Weekly (1927-28)
- Student newspapers beginning with the Scriptorium in 1932 to its end in 1969 and the Cable from its beginning in 1977 to the present
- The Towers Yearbooks starting in 1937 through 2001 with some years missing as for some years a yearbook was not published
- The Times magazine starting in 1971 to the present, In Between Times (1982-85), and Between Times starting in 1997 to the present

Every page of these publications can be searched simply by entering a name or phrase into the search field in the online database. Results of the search will display the page in pdf form, which can be saved, printed, or emailed. As these publications were already previously published and released to the public and past issues housed in the archives are freely open, this database is also similarly available.
