ENGL 366: The Carleton Miscellany

Created for Professor Kowalewski - Fall 2019

General Research Strategy

Try Advanced Searches in Catalyst, and WorldCat with the editor's names as Authors (for things they wrote) or as Subjects (for things written about them).

info_outline Search Catalyst for CDs, DVDs, LPs, and streaming audio and video held by St. Olaf and Carleton.
info_outline Search or browse research and how-to guides curated by your librarians.

Also try large repositories of digitized text or literary criticism:

And of course, don't forget to visit the College Archives or Special Collections

The majority of historical material on these men has not been digitized.

Special collections also houses copies of books and other materials that are of great value, such as the Furioso.

The College Archives are a great place to start when looking for historical information about people associated with Carleton. They have also digitized the Carletonian!
