GSA Library Subject Guides



GSA Library purchases and subscribes to a large amount of print and online content for use by GSA students and researchers. Getting to know the resources relevant to your subject area is a good idea for being able to focus your research or information search and to identify collections, journals or database that you may not yet have considered.


For this, we’ve created Subject Guides covering the range of subjects taught at GSA from Animation to Sound Design. Whether you are visiting the Library in person or online, the subject guides describe how to get the most out of available library resources and collections where you can research art, design and architecture and, increasingly, more interdisciplinary subjects. They will help you to explore the Library more fully and direct you to the most appropriate places to suit your research needs.

Enter the name of journals and databases found in your Library subject guide into 'Search the library catalogue only'.





The guides have been revamped for the start of the academic year so even if you’ve made use of them before, clicking back through could reveal something new to research.



Subject Guides provide information on:



·         Using the Library



·         Finding print books

·         Logging into online resources such as databases containing articles, images and multimedia

·         InfosmART for developing information skills
