Winter Term Adventures

The Office of Communications and Marketing will highlight Winter Term courses next month. And we have questions! What will Prof Jeff Hansen cook up this year in his “Sweet and Savory Science” class? Will Prof Greg Schwipps take his students fishing in the cold during his “Fishing in Literature” course? And we can’t wait to learn from Professors Christina Wagner and Susanne Biehle about the “Science of Stress.” Stay tuned! We’ll answer these questions and more. If you would like us to feature your course, email us at communicate@depauw.edu.

DePauw University Libraries

The libraries are participating in a trial of De Gruyter's University Press Library, which makes the content from 16 academic presses available as unlimited multi-use ebooks through April 30, 2022.  


For faculty, as you consider texts for spring courses please check if the library already has access. Our ebooks and electronic articles can often be used to support whole classes at no cost to students. We are happy to check titles for availability since not all ebooks can be purchased with appropriate access for multiple users. Just provide titles to us via our interest form and we will let you know if the title can be made available for whole class use.

The College is the Splendor and Light of the Common good banner

We want to hear from you!
