The Library wants to know more about students’ experiences while they carry out their research.

Participants will be scheduled for one 45 minute interview, and a follow-up 30 minute interview later this term. Interviews will take place on campus. Those who participate will be compensated for their time with a $10 Starbucks gift card after the first interview and a $20 Starbucks gift card after the second interview.

If you are a graduate student who would like to participate or would like more information, please contact Shelley Gullikson.

Do you know a graduate student who has recently published in an open access journal? The Graduate Student Open Access Award, sponsored by the Graduate Students’ Association (GSA), MacOdrum Library and the Office of the Vice-President (Research & International), was established in 2011 to support Carleton University graduate students in publishing research in open access journals.

Up to five monetary awards of $1,000 each will be distributed.

Any GSA member who has had a paper published or accepted (pending minor revisions) in an open access journal since January 1, 2014, can apply. The deadline is January 29, 2016.

For more information, please see the Graduate Student Open Access Award page or go directly to the application form.

There are still a limited number of desks in shared study rooms available for graduate students, so the application process has been re-opened. There are no carrels or lockers available at this time.

Applications for desks will be given priority according to the criteria listed below. If your application is accepted then you will be contacted by email. Spaces should be assigned to successful applicants by the end of September.

Priority for space is given to graduate students who meet these criteria:

  • in the faculty of FASS or FPA;
  • without office space on campus; and
  • require a quiet work space close to library resources

If space permits, other graduate students will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis.

See the Graduate Study Spaces page for more information or go directly to the Graduate Study Space Application Form.
