Resources

Here is a list of some of the resources we offer for Art. Many of these resources will require a Graceland log-in to access from off campus. Please use your MyGraceland credentials to access these resources.

If there is a book or article you cannot access through Graceland, you can order it through Interlibrary Loan!

  • NB - Sculpture
  • NC - Illustration, Design, Drawing 
  • ND - Painting
  • NE - Printing, Engraving
