Digital Commons @ Macalester: Making Scholarly and Creative Works Available to the World
October 15, 2019
This week, celebrate Open Access Week by checking out all of the great scholarship and resources, such as Digital Commons @ Macalester. It provides open access to the scholarly and creative works produced by Macalester students, faculty, and staff. Repository access and publisher in one, Digital Commons is also a means for the library to publish open access journals and ebooks, worldwide.
Here is just a taste:
- Honors Projects
A collection of student Honors Project works from 2005 to the present. An International Studies Honors Project has been downloaded more than any other work, for the year 2019, to present. It is titled Solidarity Starts at Home: An Analysis of the Polish Perception of Social Inclusion and Exclusion of Migrants by Dagmara Franczak and has been downloaded 4895 times this year, from locations across the world.
- Tapestries: Interwoven voices of local and global identities
A student produced and peer reviewed journal. Each year, students and faculty of the American Studies Department form the Editorial Collective to bring their articles together to publish as an open access, peer reviewed journal. Look for the next Tapestries release party next spring!

The inaugural book of the Intersections Series by the DeWitt Wallace Library. This series highlights the interdisciplinary nature of the liberal arts in Macalester teaching and scholarship.
