In February and March, the library is trialing a new databases subscription to the South Asia Archive. Derived from original archive materials held by the South Asia Research Foundation, the collection includes journals, books, legislative acts, colonial and post-colonial reports, and film booklets. Note: you will not be able to save documents as PDFs during the trial.
We are excited to announce that Reed Library has replaced Web of Science with Scopus.
As of January 1, 2021, the Library’s subscription to Web of Science has ended and Scopus is our new replacement for comprehensive literature searching across disciplines and citation tracing.
What is Scopus?
- Scopus is a database for abstracts and citations of journal articles, books, and more.
- You can search Scopus by title, author, institution, funder, and more.
- Like Web of Science, Scopus has a cited reference search.
- Coverage includes the Sciences, Social Sciences, and Humanities.
- There is a Scopus LibGuide that details searching, alerts, and other features.
Students, if you have been using Web of Science for an assignment or your thesis, contact your subject librarian if you need help transitioning to Scopus.
Faculty, if you, your class, or lab would like more training on Scopus please let your subject librarian know. We are also happy to help adjust assignments that used Web of Science previously and can help with new assignments as well.

We’re excited to share a new feature in Reed Digital Collections: the ability to search across collections! Want to see all items relating to the traditional game of tug of war between Reed first years and sophomores? You’ll now be able to easily search both the digitized photos from archives and the Quest newspaper collection! Or maybe you need images of a frog for an art project? You can now find them in the Art & Architecture collection, the Canyon Collection, and more, all in one search.
Be sure to sign in for full results, and happy searching! Let us know what you think at firstname.lastname@example.org
Help build the digital thesis tower! As an alum you’ll be able to access your theses online anytime, anywhere. But you have to upload it first!
- As soon as you’ve completed your first thesis check and are ready for printing, you can upload your thesis to the archive.
- Save final version of your thesis as a PDF.
- Visit the electronic theses website and click on the submission button to start the process.
Participation is voluntary and you have control over who can access your thesis. Consult with your advisor about your interest in submitting to the electronic archive, especially if your thesis contains ongoing research.
Please direct any questions to:email@example.com.

The images in this collection were largely created by Canyon Restoration Manager Zac Perry to document the Canyon from about 1999 to the present. The Reed Canyon was declared a wildlife refuge by the state of Oregon in 1913, and restoration efforts began in 1999. “Restoration goals include improving diversity of wildlife, managing invasive plant species, restoring native plant communities, and increase potential habitat for salmon and other resident fish.” (https://www.reed.edu/canyon/visit.html)
Also included in this collection are photographs of Canyon Day, images created by Canyon student employees and visitors, as well as pre-1999 photographs from the Reed College Archives.
This collection is open to current Reed students, faculty, and staff.
The Library subscribes to Sage Research Methods Online, a database with over 1,000 videos, books, handbooks, and journal articles focusing on research design and methods in the social sciences. This Thursday, September 6th, a trainer from Sage will lead workshops in Library L17 on using the tool. Snacks will be provided!
1:30-2:30 pm: Quantitative Methods Workshop

We’re excited to announce our most recent addition to Reed Digital Collections: selections from the Portland Muslim History Project archive, recently donated to Special Collections and Archives by Reed College professor Dr. Kambiz GhaneaBassiri.
The 2004 Portland Muslim History Project narrated the history of Muslim built communities in Portland, Oregon. Its aim was to contribute to scholarship on Islam and American religions by exploring how Islam becomes rooted in a local American context.
Archiving the records of this project, as well as the digital collection, is a part of a larger effort led by Dr. GhaneaBassiri, local historian Johanna Ogden, and Multnomah County archivist Terry Baxter to archive the history of Muslims in Oregon. The Oregon Historical Society, Portland State University, and Oregon State University have all played roles in this larger project.
A finding aid for the entire archive donated to Special Collections and Archives will be available in the near future. The digital collection is open to the public.
The Portland Muslim History Project digital collection is the product of a collaboration between Dr. GhaneaBassiri and Special Collections and Archives. Reed College religion majors Tehniyat Naveed and Delainey Myers were indispensable in making this project a reality.
