This guide is meant to be a general overview of library resources useful to Graphic Design students. The majority of the resources listed here are resources available through the Ricker Library, though there are other materials available online and throughout the University of Illinois library system. Because of the nature of the field, there are also additional web resources to learn more about the field, and to find inspiration. This guide is meant to serve as a basic starting point for your research needs. In addition to sharing resources, the guide is also intended to demonstrate basic research strategies so that students are comfortable searching within the library's catalog and databases.
