Photography Research Guide

This guide is meant to assist Photography students in their research.


RISD students have access to many journals and periodicals as well as ebooks. The RISD Fleet Library has many holdings, both as physical bound periodicals and through digital databases. If there is an article you would like which the Fleet library does not have, you can request the article through Interlibrary Loan (ILL). RISD students can also access Brown University Libraries. RISD students can borrow materials from Brown's libraries and access their databases. In order to access Brown's databases you must be on one of Brown's public access computers in the Rockefeller library. 

Use the Fleet Search tab on the library's home page to search for books and articles all in one place.
