New @ the Art Library!
Given the challenges most of us face now, the Art Library is pleased that it can offer its users more as we start the Fall 2012 semester. The collections have grown by more than 5,000 valuable items across all art areas, purchased as well as received through generous donations of the comprehensive collections of the QC alumnus Henry Krawitz and the late Dr. Perry A. Bialor, and from artists and art historians, faculty colleagues and students. We are grateful to all! The hours during which you can use the physical collections have increased to equal those of the main library, Mondays--Thursdays 9 am-10 pm, Fridays 9 am-5 pm, Saturdays and Sundays 11 am-5 pm. And there are new student staff colleagues who are ready to help. We all look forward to welcoming you in Art.
