The Columbia University Libraries and Cornell University Library (2CUL) have completed their first collaborative grant-funded, dual-site study focused on the experiences of humanities doctoral students at both universities. The primary goal of the study was to examine challenges presented to humanities doctoral students that lead to increased attrition and long time-to-degree completion rates. The data gathered will be used to develop strategies by which research libraries can address the issues of community, accessible space, research assistance, and development of a scholarly identity that were singled out by the study.
