The mission of our Library and Learning Resource Center is to provide the support for all aspects of teaching and learning at the American Academy of Art. This will be accomplished by combining current instructional techniques, a qualified, professional librarian, and appropriate library resources for all students and faculty.
Here you will find information about Art 101 courses, valuable online resources, and vocabulary list.
The Library is an extension of the classroom to ensure access to current ideas, information, and publications.
