Welcome to the weblog of the Visual Resources Centre at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. In these pages we will inform you of all the new materials that are being added to our collections, as well as providing links to other web resources which may be of use to the NCAD community.
The Visual Resources Centre is in the Granary building of NCAD, and is part of the Library. It is open daily, 9.30-13.00 and 14.00-17.30 during term time. The Centre holds a collection of digital resources, videos, CD-Roms and DVDs for educational use within the college. The library subscribes to the Artstor Digital Library – a collection of over a million images available for use for research and pedagogical purposes, and also maintains the NCAD image library.
The Centre compiles a list of links to resources on the web, which is updated regularly to aid research on any topic of art and design theory or practice. The list can be found on our Delicious bookmarks website.
Staff are available for consultation on all issues related to finding art/design images and information in the collection or on the web, and can organize specifically designed training sessions for different groups of college users.
