Coffee Lounge Hours

Does a nice hot cup of coffee and a snack - enjoyed in a comfy chair with a view from the third floor of the library - sound good? 

If it does, visit the library between 7:30am and noon (M-F), pick up something to read from the browsing shelves, and take a break with us!

ARTstor Visits Downton Abbey

Highclere Castle in Hampshire
If you're a fan of Downton Abbey, you know that it is a series that follows the lives of an aristocratic family and their servants in a fictional Yorkshire country estate beginning with the outbreak of World War I. 

Many who watch are fascinated by the depiction of architecture, costumes, and culture of that period in history. Season Three is upon us, and with it comes a reminder from ARTstor via the ARTstor blog regarding the availability of Downton-related fabrics, furniture, and more in collections ranging from the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the Museum of Fine Arts.

ARTstor, a digital library of more than one million images in the arts, architecture, humanities, and social sciences, is available from the Library list of databases.
