Lux is a service of the Lawrence University library. It is the digital home for the scholarly and creative works of the Lawrence University students, faculty, and staff. Lux brings these resources together in one place ensuring the long-term access and preservation of our vibrant academic community.

All Honors Projects are archived digitally in Lux.

  • Authors of Honors Projects have the option of having their projects published on the open web or restricted to access on-campus only by completing the Lux permission form
  • Authors of Honors Projects have the option of requesting an embargo on their projects
  • All copyright-protected material (images, video, music scores, etc.) must be properly attributed.
  • Physical copies of all components of Honors Projects are still required and are housed in the University Archives

Contributors are encouraged to deposit their work into Lux in an unredacted form. Early in 2012 the librarians at the Seeley G. Mudd library created a statement of fair use of copyrighted materials in scholarship, Lux Best Practices for Fair Use
