Comps & Student Work Archive

The Carleton Comps & Student Work Archive is a digital collection of comps, honors papers, and prize-winning student works submitted since the 2008-09 academic year. This archive is a collaboration between academic departments and the library and is housed in the Carleton Digital Commons. Students self-submit their work with the guidance of their departments and programs. Descriptive information about each comps, honors paper, or prize-winning work is available to search or browse. Access to the full text of works is limited to the original author of the work, current faculty, and faculty-approved Carleton students and staff. This page describes how to submit work and request access.
