Resources for Design Students at the Kathryn A. Martin Library

This guide serves as an introduction to the design resources provided by the Kathryn A. Martin Library. Each of the resources listed here is an excellent starting point for research in the field of design. However, this guide is by no means a complete list of resources. To see all the available digital design resources, visit the A-Z databases list. If you have any questions, you can contact a librarian from the box below.

Find Books

In order to find books, you can search the library catalog, which is linked in the box below. The catalog also contains ebooks, DVDs, videos, government documents, music recordings, scores, and teaching materials.

You may also want to browse these general call number areas on the 3rd floor of the library:

  • NC Illustration, Drawing, Posters, Commercial Art, Graphic Art
  • NK Graphic Design, Ceramics, Textiles, Antiques, Arts and Crafts
  • TS Industrial Design
  • Z 246, 250 Typography

If the library doesn't hold a book you're looking for, you can search WorldCat here: WorldCat -- UMD Students, Staff, and Faculty. Use WorldCat to find books, journals, articles, maps, music scores, sound recordings, films, theses/dissertations, machine-readable data files, and any other materials available in libraries worldwide. Request items through Interlibrary Loan using the ILLiad link on each item's record.
