The Corcoran Library subscribes to Material ConneXion, a database of over 7,000 materials for use by designers in all disciplines. The database provides access access to images, detailed material descriptions, usage characteristics, and manufacturer and distributor contact information for over 7,000 materials, including many sustainable and Cradle-to-Cradle materials. You can access Material ConneXion through the Corcoran Library website here. Enjoy!
You may notice some familiar names missing from our database list, but not to fear, they've just changed packaging. Art Full Text, Art & Architecture Complete, and Art Index Retrospective have been folded into a larger database - Art Source. Art Source was created from the combination of five separate database, including two that Corcoran Library users didn't have access to before. Art Source contains indexing, abstracting, and full-text for over 640 leading academic journals, magazines and trade publications, and 225 books.
The Library's Fall Semester hours will start August 28. We will open 8:30 a.m.-6 p.m., Monday - Thursday, and 8:30 a.m. - 5 p.m. Friday. The Library will be closed on Saturday and Sunday. Appointments with the Library staff may be available outside of our regular hours.
