SPARK: SPARK for Students

This guide describes Parkland College Library's institutional repository and faculty profile service.

What Does Success Look Like?

Do you know what a well written essay, an excellent poster, or a compelling speech looks like? SPARK has many examples of high quality student work. Each work in SPARK is approved for submission by a faculty member, so you know this stuff is good! In fact, some student works are among the most popular material in the whole Digital Commons Network.

 So, if you want a visible picture of successful academic and creative work, check out your fellow students' materials in SPARK. And maybe you, too, will be asked to contribute to Parkland's digital repository.

Remember to Cite!
