Art Reading Room

Located in Room 420, the Art Reading Room incorporates two quiet study areas, non-circulating collections and the offices of the Center for the Art of East Asia.

The East Asian Art Collection contains over 4000 titles for the study of East Asian Art, including reference works and facsimile editions. The second reading room houses a selection of Western artists' books, selected catalogues raisonnes and fragile or unusally formatted materials that require special care and handling.

Off-campus Access

Almost all Library databases can be accessed from off-campus. The easiest way to do this is to use links from the Library website. You will then be prompted for your CNetID and password to authenticate yourself as an authorized user.

If you find sources through Google Scholar or other search engines, you may not automatically get access to Library resources. Use the ProxyIt bookmarklet in these situations. There's more information on our guide to off-campus access
