Icons Demystified

What are those symbols next to some links?

Sometimes it can get confusing which links are available to everyone and which links are for Carleton use only.


Penguin IconThe penguin icon tells you that the resource has been licensed by the library for the use of current Carleton faculty, staff, and students. Members of the general public may use the resource while they are on the Carleton campus.


Globe IconThe globe icon tells you that the resource is freely available on the Internet. Anyone can click on the link and use the resource.


Elm Icon The ELM icon tells you that the resource is licensed through the Electronic Library of Minnesota. Minnesota residents have access to these and many more research databases through ELM.
