Preserving & Providing Access to Student Scholarly Work through Carroll Scholars

Share your work with a worldwide audience! Corette Library provides students and faculty with the ability to share and preserve their scholarly work (everything from papers, SURF presentations, digital projects and theses) through the college's institutional repository, Carroll Scholars. Great for grad school or medical school applications. Find out more here...

Items on Reserve

Faculty may request that items be placed on reserve for students in their class to use. Items that have been placed on reserve are available for checkout at the Front Desk. Course reserve material is arranged by the instructor's last name. We do not have course syllabi--please know the title and/or author of the items you need. Course reserve materials may or may not be checked out based on what your instructor has specified. A current Carroll ID must be presented in order to check out reserve material.

Simperman Learning Commons Services Available to Students

Communication Center

The Communication Center provides students and faculty with a number of resources. Students may use the center to give presentations and consult with Center staff as they seek to improve presentation skills, overcome communication anxiety, and much more. Communication Center staff collaborate with faculty in devising and carrying out presentation and multimedia assignments and using technology to deliver course material in innovative ways.

Writing Center

The Center is located on the lower level of the Library and Learning Commons. It is a place for Carroll undergraduates to get help with any aspect of their writing, from specific assignments to general writing skills, across the curriculum for all levels of students. The Writing Center is staffed by trained undergraduate tutors who provide individual meetings to students working on any writing assignment. You don't have to have a finished paper to come for a meeting. You can come with ideas, notes, or a draft. Find out more here...

Tutoring is available in library room 226 at scheduled times or upon request. Carroll College offers tutors in a range of majors. Students can sign up for tutoring sessions through the Moodle tutoring site. Find out more here...
