Purpose of the collection

The Gould Library collection supports the college's diverse programs of learning and teaching. Collection scope and depth reflect the curriculum of the college, directly supporting the teaching programs of each department, and enabling students to conduct comps research. Even an exceptional undergraduate collection cannot support faculty research, but we attempt to do so to the extent possible in a college library. Carleton's library collection is necessarily supplemented by an active interlibrary loan service, available to faculty, students and staff
