The Library collects a wide range of print, online and audiovisual material to support the curriculum, research, teaching and scholarship. Our focus is on art, design, media and performance but we also buy material to provide context to those subjects e.g. sustainability, cultural studies, history, etc.
Our criteria for selecting material:
- Relevance to the curriculum
- Supports research at the University
- Language (English, Bilingual - where one of the languages is English, or can be understood without reading the text)
- Cultural diversity
- Technical or legal considerations for online or audiovisual material.
The collections can be used in many ways and we try to strike the right balance between supporting the curriculum and providing information resources for exploration and discovery. In these pages we will highlight the range of material available to you.
