There is an exciting update to printing for Fall 2020! We are piloting a contactless release option this fall. If you have a smartphone or tablet, bring it to the printer and follow the sings to scan the QR code and release your job when it's your turn. Students must make appointments to study or use resources in Clapp Library. The week of September 14th there were 198 student appointments!   

Announcing: Wellesley Libraries To Go Service

Starting in Clapp and Art Libraries on August 26, and Music on August 31, we will begin offering Wellesley Libraries To Go!
This "curbside" pick-up service lets faculty, staff, and on-campus students who want to check out physical items request those items and arrange to collect them from outside the libraries. This will help protect everyone's health and safety by decreasing the number of people in the libraries.
Requests can be submitted using this form.  When the items have been located, the requestor is notified via email and sent another form to arrange the pick-up.  The items are checked out and bagged (bags courtesy of the Friends of the Library) and left outside the library at a prearranged time.  The pick-up location for Clapp is outside the Knapp entrance.  The locations for Art and Music are outside the libraries (but inside the building). 


Documenting the Wellesley College COVID-19 Experience

The Wellesley College archives is excited to announce the launch of "Documenting the Wellesley College COVID-19 Experience." This project aims to crowdsource born digital materials related to the Wellesley College community's experience with life during the COVID-19 global pandemic. The archives is seeking donations from members of the Wellesley College community, including staff, faculty, students, and alumnae. Donations can include anything from artistic endeavors such as poetry, to assignments that had to be transitioned amidst switching to virtual teaching, to photographs - anything that speaks to this unprecedented time and how it has affected life for the Wellesley community. Donations will become a part of the official college record of this time we are living through and will be preserved as a part of our emerging COVID-19 collection.

The archives needs your help! Please submit donations here:

We hope to collect material from the most diverse pool of community members as possible. If you have technology questions about submitting, or general questions about the process, please feel free to contact us at or 781-283-3745. Donations will be accepted on an ongoing basis.


Digital Scholarship Day 2020

Our seventh annual Digital Scholarship Day will be the first to be held virtually. To make it more accessible to all members of the Wellesley community regardless of location or other responsibilities, this year’s Digital Scholarship “Day” will span the months of May and June, with a formal launch after projects and data have been collected for presentation.

We invite students, faculty and staff to share digital scholarship that they’ve worked on this year, at any stage of completion. Examples of topics and media could include:

  • New teaching techniques or innovative assignments you’ve developed (either before or during COVID)

  • Student research - independent studies, thesis research, innovative class work

  • Any research/presentation you had originally planned on sharing in another conference

  • Video of you talking about your work/research

  • Digital poster originally intended for Ruhlman or some other conference

  • How-to video on a topic of your choosing

If you have a project or expertise you’d like to share, please email it to and include a brief description. Submissions will be published on the DS Day website in June.
