The hunt for the cultural
significance of brain tacos and the purple yam is largely behind us, but many other interesting searches have taken their place
Some topics crossing our
paths this week include:
- Lev Vygotsky
- French occupation
- Holographic energy wristbands
- Alcoholics Anonymous
week, we’ve had more than one question about finding images of different types
of interior locations for a theater class.
See below for more details.
Question: I need to find research
images of multiple interior locations, like apartment interiors, office
interiors, and a doctor’s exam room, specifically for a class in lighting design.
Answer: The library subscribes to quite a few
architectural magazines, both online and in print. Two in particular seem especially useful for a lighting design class: Architectural Lighting,
and Interior Design. Both are available online, along with pdf
images of the articles, complete with photographs and illustrations. Searching for books with keywords 'interior architecture' locates more than a few good items in our collection like, Office space planning : designing for tomorrow's workplace and Interior Design of the 20th Century. In print, the dewey decimal number for
browsing both journals and books about architecture is 720. And, finally, the library also subscribes to
Artstor, an image database, which can be useful as well.
