The Artists' Books Collection, split between both libraries, was developed to support study and teaching of bookworks as an art form.
The collection includes handmade books, published artists' books and special format exhibition catalogs, comics and zines. Titles are searchable in the catalog.
The Miniatures collection is located above the New Books shelf in Meyer. These smaller titles range from comics to critical theory. Don't let their size fool you–these works have an impact much larger than their stature.
A collection of small press and handmade books of literature and poetry, donated by Small Press Traffic Literary Arts Center (SPT), an organization at the heart of San Francisco's innovative writing scene, bringing together readers, writers, and independent presses to engage, create, present, critique and archive their work. SPT's mission is to provide a local and national platform for experimental writing, paying particular attention to underserved writers and those that identify as women, LBGTQ and/or people of color.
The CCA Libraries have a specially tailored Faculty Development Collection focusing art pedagogy, multicultural education, research, critique, technology, new media, and more. The collection is physically located in Meyer Library inside the Teaching Support Studio on the Oakland campus.
