Broadening the Bridge is a collaborative effort between St. Olaf and Carleton Colleges. A strong bridge is already sustained through the link between the two libraries, but we aim to extend our reach to one another.
The "Broadening the Bridge" project is supported with a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
