Thesis Support + Carrels

Would you like to use your own carrel while writing your thesis?

  • Use this form to apply for a carrel in McCabe for a semester, or two semesters for longer projects. (Look for location maps at the bottom of the form. They may take a moment to appear!)
  • While you may keep checked out items and personal belongings on your carrel, the Libraries are not responsible for private property, so use of a locker is recommended.
  • Speak to Performing Arts Librarian Donna Fournier about reserving a thesis carrel in Underhill.
  • Thesis carrels are not available in Cornell.

Archive & Share Your Thesis

The libraries keep a repository of student theses and projects!  In order for the Libraries to preserve and share your senior thesis via Swarthmore Student Scholarship, fill out the Student Thesis Form.

On the form, we'll ask for permission to archive your work and you'll also be able to choose the following privacy options:

  • Public (available to the general public)
  • Limited to the Swarthmore College community

Learn more about our Digital Collections, or go directly to the repository for Swarthmore Student Scholarship. (Restrictions may apply based on permissions set by individual students.)
