Alumni Information and Services
A guide for Carleton soon-to-be alumni and current alumni on library services.
Did you know that the Gould Library purchased an EndNote software license for the Carleton College community? That's why current Carleton students, faculty, and staff can use all of EndNote's functions without paying an additional fee.
Now that you are about the leave Carleton, your friendly librarians highly suggest that you update your EndNote software before you leave. That way, you can still save your research material. If you update EndNote after you graduate, you will lose all your saved materials. So be sure to check that your EndNote is the most recent version.
After you leave Carleton, you won't be able to access any of our library databases off-campus except for JSTOR. If you have citations for materials in our digital collections, you should consider downloading the PDFs for those citations if you plan on referring to them in the future. Some suggestions are comps sources, past research papers, past class assignments, and materials you are interested in reading.
Permanent: This archive will preserve your work for the future as well as make it available for you should you ever lose your own files.
Discoverable: The archived copy in Carleton Digital Commons can act as the permanent discoverable online version that you can refer to for future applications to graduate school or employment opportunities.
