Fashion and Textiles: Welcome

New Resources!

We have recently subscribed to some exciting new resources to enhance our online provision in the visual arts. These packages include eBooks, cutting-edge articles from leading design writers and a wealth of visual material including high quality images.

Online Resources

 This is a list of resources online which you may find helpful if you are not able to use the Sheppard Library.

Library Search is very useful for finding ebooks and online journal articles, but don't forget there are specialist art & design databases too.
