Digital Archiving of Comps, Honors Papers & Prize-Winning Works

Carleton is creating a digital archive of significant student work, in the form of comps, honors papers & prize-winning works. Faculty and staff in each academic department or program will work with their students to ensure that the final version of comps papers and projects, honors papers & prize-winning works are archived in a digital form, starting with the 2008-09 academic year.

Read on for more information about seeing what's in the archive, submitting to the archive, and our policies.
