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. 

In early 2022 Vassar College Libraries moved the institutional repository from Digital Window to the Vassar College Digital Library. 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.
