Imag(e)ine That! Image Discovery Week

Design Library News - Tue, 2012-09-25 13:10

We’re highlighting the image collections in the Design Library and the Special Collections Research Center this week for Image Discovery Week! We’d like to be sure everyone is aware of the resources for images like ARTstor, the Design Library Image Database, and the Special Collections Image Collections. If you’re curious about what these collections hold, we’ll be showing off images from our collection and Special Collections on an eboard in the Design Library, so come by the library and see it. And if you’d like us to help you learn to use these databases, or if you would like us to come talk to your students, please let Barbara (barbara_brenny@ncsu.edu) or me (karen_dewitt@ncsu.edu) know, and we will be happy to help you.

Go to this site to see an overview of the image collections relevant to Design:

And go here to see the images that Special Collections has digitized from their archives:
