Library Services

To help students effectively use library resources, the Library Director is available to provide information literacy instruction through reference assistance, in-class presentations, to work with students individually, to manage course reserves, and invite acquisitions requests. Materials not available within our collection may be requested through interlibrary loan or by visiting one of the many library collections in this area, including Delaware Public Libraries, University of Delaware, Delaware Art Museum, Winterthur Library, and the Delaware Historical Society Research Library.

About

Our collection is focused primarily on fine and applied arts in support of the curriculum and includes books, periodicals, videos, DVDs and sound files.  The online resources provide students access to articles from art and design publications, scholarly introductions to artistic periods, artist biographies as well as high-quality images.  All of these resources are available to students anywhere with an internet connection and in the library from any of its 10 computer stations.  Wireless Internet, a color printer, three color scanners, a black and white copier and comfortable study space are also available in the library.
