Works is a project that aims to collect all of the College's faculty output and research under one umbrella, in order to preserve and provide access to that research.
Some works are full text, either through being published with an open access license or from the libraries getting permission from the publisher to host the content. Other works may be free to read online only, courtesy of the publisher.
There are a number of ways to keep up to date with what our faculty are publishing. You can follow all Swarthmore scholarship, scholarship by department(s), or the works of individual authors. You can also subscribe to updates from our active journals and set alerts for research based on certain keywords.
Departments are regularly updated on a monthly basis, with intermittent updates. You will be emailed updates no more than once per week; if there are no new updates, you will not receive any emails.
