The open access Carleton Faculty & Staff Scholarship Collection contains a selection of journal articles published by Carleton faculty and staff since 2009. Each article was submitted by the author/s to the Dean of the College for recognition during the annual Faculty & Staff Scholarship Celebration. The collection represents the beginning of what is often referred to as an “institutional repository” or IR, an online archive where colleges and universities collect and showcase digital versions of the work of the faculty, staff, and sometimes students. For more information, contact Eric Hillemann, College Archivist or Nat Wilson, Digital Archivist.

The library has implemented some big changes on our website, and with our Bridge catalog. We'd love to hear what you think of them!
Leave us your thoughts, suggestions, concerns and ideas on our Bridge feedback form.
(The form mentions both Carleton and St. Olaf libraries because the Bridge consortium worked on both the new Bridge catalog interface, and our updates to the website. Please feel free to enter your thoughts on anything Carleton library related).
