The Library is located next to the art building. We have books, journals, DVDs and special collections as well as online databases.
Many art and architecture books are located on the first floor of the library in the N's; photography can be found on the 8th floor in the T's. Don't forget the oversized books! Also on the first floor, these contain many of the best images.
To check out books, use your BGSU ID.
The library has print journals from 1997 to the present. Older volumes can be requested from the Depository. Print journals are on the first floor in alphabetical order by title. In addition, there are magazines and fanzines like Art Freak and Flygirl in the Music Library and Popular Culture Library.
Current issues of print journals cannot usually be checked out, but the library has scanners and color copiers on the first floor. Older issues (bound volumes) can be checked out.
DVDs and videos
DVDs and videos are on the first floor by the oversized books, in the Popular Culture Library, and online in Kanopy.
Students can check out first-floor DVDs and videos for one week and DVDs from the Popular Culture Library for 3 days.
Databases are the best way to find articles, but they are good for finding books and images, too. Databases for art historians are listed in the Art, Architecture & Design category. See the box on this page called "Five Essential Databases" for a few really good ones, or click on the Articles tab for more options.
