Welcome Back, Kotter!

While that reference is probably over most of our students' heads (read: aging ourselves here); the library faculty and student staff would like to welcome new and returning students back to LIM College! The library has had a small face lift with new shelving installed over the summer, a new website, and new resources (more to come on that, next week!).

In the mean time, we would like to remind you of the fashion-centric resources that we provide for both scholarly and everyday research. 

Looking for an article for your Research and Analysis course? Look no further than the databases page. All databases are organized by subject areas and are great for finding scholarly and popular sources.

We have a wide range of monographs that are ready to be checked out. Ranging from designer biographies to interior design inspiration. Looking for a book to read for your Fashion Fundamentals book report? Look no further than the Fashion Fundamentals Book Recommendations put together by our librarians. 

Don't forget our DVDs and Periodical areas. We've got over 10 editions of Vogue and DVDs ranging from classic movies to education to current TV shows. 

Stop by today and ask for research help today!
