New Images in ARTstor!

Storyville Portrait, E.J. Bellocq, c. 1912


JSTOR logo We recently gained full-text online access to over 150 journals in the arts and humanities through a new subscription to JSTOR.

Ecolect at CCA

The folks at Ecolect, an online community for sustainable design, recently trekked over to CCA's New Material

Book Art Competition

To promote excellence in bookmaking, Meyer Library is sponsoring the first annual CCA Student Book Art Competition, with a top prize of $200!

Each year one book by a CCA student will be selected for inclusion in the library's artist book collection. The book as an expressive art form can be made from many types of materials and created in many media. Some have words; some are purely visual.

Whitney Biennial

If you can't get to New York for the Whitney Biennial, check out virtual views from the New York Times.

Film literature

We added a link to the Film Literature Index (FLI) on our articles page recently. You can search the FLI for articles from over 150 film and television periodicals published between 1976-2001. When you find a citation for an article in the FLI, search for the periodical title in the Journal Finder to see how you can access the article at CCA.

Design image bonanza

The University of Washington Libraries have a LOT of interesting image collections online, including:

Artists' books online

Our man in SF recently brought to my attention Artists' Books Online, a repository of information and hi-res images from hundreds of great (what else) artists' books. ABsOnline is headed by Johanna Drucker, and includes scans of complete works by Drucker, CCA faculty member Emily McVarish, Joan Lyons, Clifton Kirkpatrick Meador, and about 50 other accomplished book artists.

On exhibit

From an aesthetics point of view - selections from our latest acquisitions in philosophy and aesthetics - are currently on display in the Meyer Library.

Black History Resources

Celebrate Black History Month by browsing CCA library resources.


FlickrCC allows you to search the photo-sharing site Flickr for images that are released under a Creative Commons (CC) license. This is a great way to find high-resolution photos that you can use, edit, and/or repurpose without worrying about copyright.

Google Art Search

Using Google to search for reliable and in-depth analyses of artists and art topics is sort of like using a microwave to cook a gourmet meal.

Journal of Visual Culture

Vol. 6:3 is a special issue on "Hong Kong, and Other Returns." It is available for checkout or perusal in Simpson Library.

Photography archive

The Library of Congress recently put over 3000 high-resolution images of photographs from the Farm Security Administration/Office of War Information, and the George Grantham Bain News Service on a new Library of Congress Flickr page. These photos have been digitized and available on the LC's website for awhile, but putting them on Flickr makes them about 100 times easier to browse, search, and actually use. And the photos are amazing!
