Doing Research Abroad

Tips and resources for when you are studying abroad

Accessing Carleton Material Abroad

When abroad, you can access Carleton’s collection of e-materials such as e-books, journals, and scholarly articles through Catalyst. To do this, you will need to verify your identity as a current Carleton student. You can refer to the Gould Guide “Using the Library from Off Campus” for more details. 

As a Carleton student, you also have access to InterLibrary Loan while you are abroad; however, you can only request materials that can be digitally delivered via e-mail, such as a journal article or a book chapter.

If you have any questions or need helping getting materials through Carleton, feel free to contact a reference librarian via Librarian Chat (available 24/7), e-mail, phone, or drop-in.  

Continuing your Abroad Research at Carleton

If you find materials abroad that would like to use after you have returned to Carleton or anywhere else, we suggest that you make copies of that material while you are there. The copyright laws applicable to the material you're looking at still apply. This suggestion is highly recommended because ILL/Interlibrary Loan Services is not always able to request materials from another country; rather than risking the possibility of not getting the materials, you should make copies of it for the likely event you need it again.
