SCARAB (Scholarly Communication and Research at Bates) is designed to offer universal access to scholarship and research of Bates College. Jointly sponsored by the Imaging and Computing Center and the Muskie Archives and Special Collections Library, SCARAB has a dual role in both promoting the use of the college's scholarly output and ensuring its long-term preservation.

About Institutional Repositories

Institutional Repositories (IRs) bring together all of a University's research under one umbrella, with an aim to preserve and provide access to that research.

IRs are an excellent vehicle for working papers or copies of published articles and conference papers. Presentations, senior theses, and other works not published elsewhere can also be published in the IR.
