Men's College Hockey Team Media Guides

Identifier: HKY 550

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of printed media guides for men's college ice hockey teams in the United Statesa and Canada. Media guides were typically published by colleges or universities on an annual basis prior to each ice hockey season. The guides generally included a review of the previous season (including statistics), a preview of the upcoming season (including schedules and opponent information), and photographs and bios of players, coaches, and staff. Other content sometimes included broader information about the history of the program or of the institution. Some guides contain advertisements. Printed guides were primariy distributed to the media and were sometimes also provided to season-ticket holders or sold to fans. Media guides generally became more substantial in the 1980s and 1990s. In the 21st century there was a marked trend towards replacing printed guides with online guides. Most guides date from the 1980s, 1990s, and early 2000s. Materials include printed media guides.

Guides are arranged alphabetically by issuing school and then by date. Schools are alphabetized by their familiar, shorthand names. Years denote the first year of the winter season.
