The following news clippings about World Maritime University were collected between 1980 and 1990. This covers the early years of the university, including the pre-inaugural planning phase. The range of sources include prominent trade journals, IMO News, Scandinavian newspapers, and WMU communiqués. Many of them have yet to be identified. To begin with, authorship is not always attributed in journalistic articles, but in many cases the items that were scanned did not provide the title of the article or the title of the periodical in which it appeared.
Readers who can identify or provide more details to these anonymous, title-less clippings are encouraged to contact the library.
Special thanks to library interns, Sélène Boixel and her brother, Malo Boixel, for their efforts in scanning and cataloging the materials for this project.
