Fleet Library at RISD Alumni Collection: About the Collection

Introducing a new permanent book display celebrating published alumni

About the Collection

Fleet Library and the RISD Alumni Association have joined forces to establish a new book collection featuring alumni authors, illustrators, designers and publishers.

The Fleet Library at RISD Alumni Collection highlights and celebrates RISD's creative publishing community. The collection contains hundreds of titles, including books and other materials. Each item has a special bookplate to identify it as part of the collection. The bookplates recognize the alumni and their contributions to the published work. The collection spans a wide range of subjects, including art and design, fiction, children's literature, food, memoirs, social justice and more.

The Collection will have a dedicated space in the Library's Main Reading Room, with many of its volumes available to circulate to the RISD community.

For information about donating to the collection, please visit the Library's Gift Policy or submit using this form.
