Vassar College Digital Library

Institutional Repository

Vassar College's institutional repository reflects the research and scholarly output of the Vassar College community.  It provides access to many collections, including a variety of senior theses and projects from disciplines ranging from American Culture to Urban Studies.

This new method of access is a work in progress and will be officially launched in June 2022. The original Digital Window will remain accessible through July 1, 2022.
