Liberal Arts Reading Room

Back to Liberal Arts Resource Page

A search of infotrac produced numerous articles on the importance of liberal arts, liberal arts and careers, and theoretical discussions of the liberal arts.Some of these are citation only - but a student worker could easily run them down. Others can be downloaded directly to a restricted reading room (to comply with copyrights).

Some faculty may be aware of additional articles on the liberal arts (in general or concerning their own disciplines).  All this can be fodder for our own discussions and eventually cited in promotional materials for our programs. This effort to collect data should be continued after the program is established - individual disciplines should be encouraged to update for the good of their own discipline and for the liberal arts program in general.
