A yearbook is a book of photos and words published annually by an institution to commemorate and highlight the events of a given school in the previous year. In the 20th century, yearbooks were popular at elementary and middle schools, high schools and colleges and universities. Yearbooks can feature the likes of either individual student, class or discipline-specific photos, sports highlights, reporting on club events and the general documentation of student life.
A yearbook refers to a publication typically at the high school or university level that is published each year and provides a snapshot of the annual academic experience. While yearbooks were typically popular in high schools and universities, they are becoming increasingly downsized or phased out due to the rise of social media or internet-based alternatives.
