Using Special Collections


In teaching your classes, I’m sure that you consider taking classes on field trips or recommending they see certain shows at local museums and on campus. Have you also considered the resources at Special Collections at the Central Library? Or the resources available at the Architecture and Fine Arts Library? Contact the librarians to find out if they have anything that you can view with your class. The Advanced Lithography got to see a beautiful collection of lithographic illustrations, cartoons, maps, and books. But there are also photographs, other types of historical prints, and books that pertain to a number of art and art historical topics.
