This guide was originally created by Celia Emmelhainz and Juliette Monet, using links from Colby, Rutgers, Davidson, Cornell, and NYU guides. 


Whether you're in Salamanca, Dijon, or Saudi Arabia, the Colby libraries have plenty of resources for you. The study abroad office and librarians have gathered these resources to help you research the culture and politics of your host country before you go, and to access thousands of ebooks, book chapters, and journal articles while you are 5000 miles away. Bookmark this page. To search the library catalog, visit the Libraries homepage.
