CSMonitor Turns 100

Happy centennial to the Christian Science Monitor, which debuted on this day back in 1908. They've got a nice package of centennial-related features, which begins here. There's also a photo gallery. CSM Librarian Leigh Montgomery wrote on Ex-Libris this morning, "Our library staff made use of a substantial amount of archival material to contribute to this section; I am most grateful that so many photos, objects, and pieces of information were catalogued and retained by the archivists and librarians of this organization and other institutions."

In other news, the Monitor recently announced that it will cease daily publication of its print newspaper in favor of a weekly print edition and a web-only daily. The changeover is scheduled for April 2009.
