Administrative/Biographical History

Koç University published its first yearbook in 1994. During this early period, the name of the yearbook changed from Koç University Kaleidoscope (1994-1999) to Koç University (2000-present).

While describing items in the library catalog as well as in the digital collection, the original title “Kaleidoscope” has been retained in the alternative title field, whereas library staff prefers “Koç University Alumni Yearbook” as title to be more specific for searching.
