In celebration of the renaming of the School of Architecture & Allied Arts to the College of Design, the Design Library begins the academic year with a showcase of works from its special collections. On display during fall term in the library’s exhibit cases and current periodicals room are artists’ books, rare books, original prints and watercolors, and historic architectural models.  Continuously on display throughout the three-story Design Library are art works and artifacts which reflect the heritage of the College of Design.
