  • What happened to all the DVDs? They are now housed in our new shelving in the alcove by the front door! CDs and stock footage discs are shelved by Dan’s office. The shelving, constructed with NewWood, is made of 100% recycled content (1/2 plastic and 1/2 wood) and looks really cool. In turn, the shelving is completely recyclable which will be great when they break down in 1000 years. Come in and check them out.
  • We subscribed to a bunch of new scholarly journals which can be found on our Scholarly Journals page. All of them have electronic access and most can be accessed from off-campus. See the Library Homeroom page for login and password information for off-campus access. Some of the new titles include Craft Research, Design Ecologies, and the Journal of Visual Art Practice.
  • There’s a new page on our site just for your Thesis year. The BFA Thesis Resources page includes links to online resources for The Chicago Manual of Style and Turabian’s handbook. In addition, you can find the Thesis Handbook, formatting tutorials, and information on past Theses. Other students may also find it helpful.

Word and Quote of the week

Art on Display


Laura DeVito is an MFA student in Collaborative Design and has been taking photos with a childlike curiosity.

The photos in this series are meant to reflect oneness. It seems that most people view nature as a separate entity. People either run from or go to nature rather than realizing that we are actually a part of it. Humanity is slowly returning to the thought of nature and making the realization that everything is connected and interdependent upon one another.

The locations are all in Oregon: Cape Blanco, Strawberry Hill, Nehalem & Mount Hood.

Art Full Text is now hosted by EBSCOhost!

But never fear, it’s still full of great articles from 1984 to the present! When you follow the Art Full Text link on our databases page, you might notice that it looks a little different. You might already be familiar with EBSCO’s platform, but if not, please let us know if you’d like some help navigating it.

(Note: off-campus access remains the same with the old username and password; both are available at the library and on the library homeroom site.)

Search over 44,000 photos, paintings, videos, articles, interviews, lectures and original works of fine art. All by you.
