The Visual Resources & Special Collections (VRSC) provides visual materials to support teaching and learning at the University of the Arts, and instruction in the use of those materials. Our digital image collections are accessible through ARTstor and the UArts Digital Collections.
ARTstor is a digital collection of over one million images in the areas of art, architecture, the humanities, and social sciences, with an offline image viewer that can be used to organize and display images. The UArts Digital Collections contain images from the library archives and special collections.
Special Collections include rare books, book arts, the textile collection, the zine collection, and UArts theses. These materials do not circulate, but may be used in the VRSC. Arrangements can be made by faculty to view these materials with their classes in the VRSC or in other UArts Libraries spaces. Researchers from outside the university may use the collection by appointment.
For more information on the VRSC or to schedule an appointment to use the collections, contact Laura Grutzeck, the Visual Resources and Special Collections Librarian.
