The Catalogue was first published in 1807 as a single page broadside with the names of administrators, faculty, and students. As the College expanded, so did the Catalogue, including information on the academic calendar, curriculum, admissions policies, finances, campus buildings, and student life. In 2015, the Catalogue was renamed the Academic Handbook: Policies and Procedures. This change reflects the transition of individual course listings and descriptions from the printed publication to an electronic format.

This collection includes print copies of the Bowdoin College Catalogue from 1807.

Series Description:

Bowdoin College has produced a general Catalogue since 1807, when a single broadsheet listed the president, two professors and two tutors; the graduates in 1806 (six students) and 1807 (three students); and the total current student body (forty-two). Curricular information was included in 1822 and from 1821-1921, information on the Medical School of Maine. Between 1904 and 1977 the Catalogue was published as an issue of the Bowdoin College Bulletin. Beginning in 1969, the list of students was no longer published in the Catalogue (a separate student directory had been produced since 1949).

In the 2010-2011 academic year, the Catalogue became primarily an online publication available via the College website; a pared down print version was also produced in parallel with the online Catalogue.
