Scandinavian artists' films

We have recently added a number of Scandinavian artists' films into stock in the library.

These include short films, video installations and exhibition previews by a number of leading and unheralded conceptual artists from Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.

All these titles, that include work by the likes of Eva Koch, Bodil Furu and Johanna Billing, can be found in the DVD collection between DVD 2157 & 2179.

New and Improved Subject Guides

GSA Library has just updated and expanded its range of tailored subject guides in preparation for the start of the 2011-2012 academic session.
Our subject guides have a great new streamlined look, and have been made available as PDFs for easy download. They provide a quick one-stop guide to the resources available for all GSA programmes and subject areas, as well as for affiliated topics such as Film and Cinema. Find out useful shelfmarks in the Library, print and electronic journals, online databases and imagebanks, library blogs and learning materials, all tailored to your specific subject or course of study.

Creative Research at GSA Library

GSA Library has just launched its brand-new mini-site, 'Creative Research'.
Discover how artists, writers and creative practitioners have used the collections of GSA Learning Resources to inspire, challenge or expand their practice. From interventions into our spaces, to installations amongst our shelves, our collections can be used to explore and challenge artistic, cultural and philosophical themes and preoccupations.
‘Creative Research’ brings together a number of case studies, images and artist testimonies to explore how practitioners have used, played with, and deconstructed the Library’s spaces and collections. The resource is freely available on the Library Website.
