Welcome to the Illustration Research Guide. This guide covers a wide range of available resources such as useful books, links, and digital resources.
Keep in mind that research is an iterative process; it will build on itself and is often better accomplished in multiple small steps. Art is often an interdisciplinary area of study so some resources might seem more relevant than others. This guide cannot list all possible resources, but it is a good place to start. If you have more questions or need additional help, just ask! There are librarians available to help you find answers.
Your library account enables off-campus access to library databases as well as tools for managing your checked-out items. The VPN provided by IT Services also enables library database access - we recommend it to anyone who uses them frequently!
Get started: Visit the library homepage and click "My Account" in the top right corner. Follow the instructions on the screen.
Your library account login is different from your RISD login.

Please note that this year some faculty and students have not received printed ID cards. Without an ID card, you will need to ask us for your library barcode number. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org using your official RISD email address.
