About the Center for Archival Research and Training

The Elisabeth Remak-Honnef Center for Archival Research and Training (CART) integrates primary source materials more fully into the teaching and research mission of the university by providing hands-on experience for graduate students, while enhancing access to archival collections for all. Working as a CART fellow allows students to gain experience with primary sources and receive compensation at a rate competitive with similar on-campus employment options.

Students in the CART fellowship:

  • gain practical, paid work experience in a library and archives setting
  • help make archival collections available to researchers
  • enhance their own skills in conducting primary source research
  • work with other graduate students from different disciplines and interests
  • collaboratively curate an exhibit showcasing archival materials
  • learn about digital humanities tools in the Digital Scholarship Commons
  • present their work at the annual Graduate Research Symposium during Spring quarter

The CART Commons program:

  • provides an informal setting to discuss issues related to archival research
  • hosts hands-on sessions with archival collections
  • is open to all graduate students
