Soon after The Johns Hopkins University opened in October 1876, they began printing lists of academic regulations and guides to various courses of study. These brief publications soon became a full-fledged journal. In addition to course and program descriptions, the Circulars, as they have been known since the earliest days, also contained brief articles detailing academic research by faculty members. This practice continued until the early 20th century, when the Circulars evolved into a standard "college catalog." One of the most useful parts of the early Circulars were listings of all students enrolled in each course in each semester.

PDF versions of the Circulars exist through 1934, and all such documents are available here. For Circulars 1935 to the present, please contact Special Collections.
