- The Johns Hopkins News-Letter, first published in 1897, is available online.
- The yearbooks, 1889-2015, are also available online.
- “The History of Student Life at JHU” is an online exhibit put together by students documenting the history of Hopkins student life.

- The Johns Hopkins University Alumni Collection comprises records donated by Hopkins alumni documenting their time as students.
- Our collection of first-generation students oral histories feature recordings, all online, of Hopkins students who were the first in their families to attend college.
