Resources and research tips for students interested in learning drawing techniques.

Finding Drawing Resources

Welcome to the guide for drawing.  Use the tabs across the top of this page to find information about books, periodicals, and images.


What are reserve books? Any book that a faculty member wants the students to use for class.  Reserve books have a white sticker on the spine with information about the faculty name on it.

Where are they?  Look for the shelves on the very far, East wall of the library, past the semi-circular couches and by the current periodicals.

How can I use reserve books?  Any student may take a reserve book off the shelf and use it in the library.  The books are arranged on shelves that are labeled alphabetically by faculty name.  When you are done with it, simply bring it to the front desk to return it.  Reserve books are not typically able to be checked out.

Why does the Art Library have reserve books? The Art Library provides reserves services so that students studying similar or the same materials can have equitable access to materials.
